Vidic: Happy at Old Trafford
Nemanja Vidic's agent has hit out at reports that the Manchester United defender could leave at Old Trafford.
The Serbia international, named United's player of the year last season, was quoted as saying his wife was finding it hard to settle in England.
Vidic, who is under contract until 2012, subsequently found his name linked with a host of top clubs across Europe, including Barcelona, AC Milan and Inter Milan.
But Silvano Martina, who represents the former Spartak Moscow player, claims his client has not given any interviews in recent weeks and insists he is going nowhere.
"Even though Vidic has not spoken for the last three months, there have been false interviews published in the press," Martina told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I read that he wants to leave, that his wife is not happy at Manchester but all of these stories are false.
"He is very annoyed and saddened by these stories that give the wrong impression.
"In football you never know what can happen, but I believe he will remain at Manchester United, one of the strongest clubs in the world.
"If Vidic or I should have problems with the club (United), we will talk directly to Alex Ferguson and not to the newspapers."
