Udinese have warned Manchester United that they won’t be parting company with talented striker Fabio Quagliarella.
The Zebrette bought full rights to the 24-year-old hitman when they outbid Sampdoria in a blind auction last summer.
Quagliarella has found the net six times this term and remains on the fringes of the Azzurri side, winning a host of potential suitors including the English champions.
"We aren’t giving any time to rumours linking Fabio with a move to Manchester," sporting director Pietro Lombardi said.
"We have no intention of doing without a player who holds such importance in the club’s future. We are starting a new cycle.
"Since last summer transfer ‘experts’ have been throwing up rumours involving our players.
"On one hand it’s flattering as it shows that our players are doing well, but on the other it could disrupt us if our players weren’t better than that."
