Nemanja Vidic's agent has ruled out any possibility of the Manchester United defender joining Serie A champions Juventus in the January transfer window.

The Serbia international centre-back was recently ruled out for eight weeks following a knee operation and is not expected to return to action before the end of November.

Vidic was also forced to miss the final five months of last season with a ruptured cruciate knee ligament and now reports have again linked the 30-year-old with a move away from Old Trafford.

However, his Italian agent Silvano Martina has laughed off suggestions the player is considering a move to Juventus or Barcelona this winter.

He told the website "Vidic is not playing at this time because he's had surgery, so he's only thinking about his recovery and not about the transfer market.

"Juventus are complete with their non-EU players for this season and it is highly unlikely they will make a bid for Vidic, therefore I can categorically rule out any interest from them.

"Vidic is already part of a top club and there are no negotiations with Juventus or Barcelona."
