Nemanja Vidic's agent has rejected reports that the centre-back would be interested in seeking a 'dream' move to Barcelona.

The Serbian stopper has evolved into one of the best in the business since arriving at Old Trafford from Spartak Moscow in 2006 and his form has led to speculation that several European clubs are interested in securing his services.

Barca have been mooted as suitors for Vidic, and quotes emerged from the player's agent on Monday night intimating that he would be keen on a deal.

Paolo Fabbri was reported to have told Catalan radio station RAC-1: "It would be a dream for Vidic to play for Barcelona. He would be delighted to join them, as he wants to play in La Liga.''

However, Fabbri has since denied he made such comments and has instead insisted Vidic is settled at Premier League champions United.

"This is not true," he said. "I never said these things. Nemanja is happy in Manchester. If Barcelona do make an offer for him then it is up to United to make a decision."
