Manchester United are eyeing Wolfsburg fullback Ricardo Rodriguez.

The Daily Mail says Wolfsburg have made it clear they have no intention of selling Rodriguez, despite rumours linking the Swiss left-back with a move to Manchester United.

New United boss Louis van Gaal is believed to be interested in bolstering his defence, particularly the left-back spot following Patrice Evra's switch to Juventus.

Reports from Germany suggest United have contacted Rodriguez's agent about a possible move, but Wolfsburg's sporting director Klaus Allofs has ruled out a potential transfer.

"That will have been a brief conversation," Allofs told Kicker when asked about United's meeting with Rodriguez's agent. "Ricardo is not going anywhere."
