Chiellini's agent plays down talk of Premiership move

Giorgio Chiellini's agent has denied that his client is set for a move to England, despite being at the Manchester derby on Tuesday. Chiellini has revealed that he was invited by both clubs to attend, whilst also admitting he is currently locked in talks with Tottenham.

But agent Davide Lippi says a move is not imminent for the Juventus defender.

"I was there but it was absolutely a courtesy visit," Lippi told Sky Italia .

"I was invited by the two clubs and I was pleased to see a good match. The market is open all year, talking with everyone and everything, not just Chiellini.

"A real interest? It is normal when we talk about a very important player like Chiellini, but there is no news.

"There are many players that may interest Manchester City or the United, today I was talking to the leaders of Tottenham."
