Following reports Real Madrid were interested in Nemanja Vidic, his agent has quickly moved to dismiss the rumours of a move to Spain. "I am quite surprised by all these rumours, the situation is under control and is not unusual," Paolo Fabbri told ESPN Soccernet.

"As far as I know, the player is not negotiating with any other club.

"Regarding the mood of the player, I think it is standard. I have not spoken to him since the last defeat [against Leeds United in the FA Cup] but, as far as I know, there is no problem."
