Vidic dismisses Spanish move

BELGRADE, February 18- Serbia captain Nemanja Vidic brushed off speculation here Thursday of a possible move to Spain, saying he wanted to stay with Manchester United until the end of his contract in 2012.

"I will repeat for the hundredth time: my contract with Manchester is until the summer of 2012 and I want to stay in Old Traford until the last day," Vidic told Belgrade daily Vecernje Novosti.

"Only this is true, everything else is a baseless story," Vidic said.

Vidic, 28, said he has not been in contact with any other European club.

"No, no, no, I have made a career in Manchester and I respect that fully. No one has contacted me and I have not spoken to anyone," he insisted.

The Serbian centreback said he has missed several matches since January as he suffered two injuries.

"First I had troubles with a calf muscle, but I started with training too early and felt strong pain in the back of a calf," Vidic said.

But he insisted he was ready to return to the field.

"I am healthy… I feel strong and I believe I can return in full," Vidic said.

British media have reported that United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been unhappy with Vidic, fuelling rumours the Serbian international is keen on a move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid.
