The player’s agent, Silvano Martina, refuted suggestions of a return to Old Trafford last week but reports continue to emanate from Italy that the former United captain is unsettled and yearning for a return to Manchester.
The veteran Serb defender is thought to be unhappy at being overlooked by manager Roberto Mancini and though the pair will meet for talks this weekend United have ruled out coming to the player’s rescue.
Manager Louis Van Gaal is reportedly keen to move forward rather than turn to former players for aid, and will instead press ahead with moves for Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin and Borussia Dortmund star Mats Hummels.
