Vidic dismisses Manchester United transfer talk

Nemanja Vidic has once again rejected talk of a possible move away from Manchester United this summer.

Vidic has been the subject of intense speculation for most of the season, with claims his wife Ana is not happy in England and both AC Milan and Real Madrid suggested as potential destinations for the tough-tackling Serb.

Yet the 28-year-old has consistently queried how such rumours have spread.

A firm favourite among the United faithful, Vidic has won the Premier League title in each of his three full seasons at Old Trafford.

Vidic was even elevated to the captaincy earlier this season as injury rampaged through Sir Alex Ferguson's squad.

And, ahead of tonight's Champions League quarter-final with Bayern Munich, the £7million bargain capture from Spartak Moscow in 2005 has confirmed that he has not spoken to any other club about leaving United at the end of the season.

"I have never said anything about wanting to leave," he told United Review.

"The speculation has all been generated by other people.

"I think one reason it went on for so long was because I was injured and didn't have many chances to speak out about the issue.

"But I haven't spoken to any other clubs.

"United is a great club. I have had a lot of success and made a name for myself here. I appreciate all of that."
