Kevin Strootman is unlikely to be leaving PSV Eindhoven this summer despite reported interest from Inter Milan and Manchester United.
The Dutchman is understood to be fancied by the Premier League runners-up with Sir Alex Ferguson looking to breathe new life into his midfield.
However, the player's representative has dismissed talk of a move to United, claiming that having signed a five-year deal; a transfer is not in the offing.
"Inter Milan and the player? At the moment there is nothing concrete," Chiel Dekker told the Sunday Mirror.
"Manchester United? The same. Personally, I find it rather difficult for him to leave the club because he only arrived last summer and has a five-year contract.
"The boy is not worried at all and is just focused on his work for Holland. Eventually, after the Euros we will see what might happen."
The 22-year-old joined PSV from Utrecht last summer but couldn't help the club win the Eredivisie title.
Strootman will make up part of Bert van Marwijk's Holland squad for the summer's European Championships, but is likely to play second fiddle to Nigel de Jong and Rafael van der Vaart.
The former Sparta Rotterdam midfielder would add control to a United midfield which was often overawed at crucial times last season.
Despite Paul Scholes signing on for another year at Old Trafford, the over reliance on him and fellow veteran Ryan Giggs must be a worry for Ferguson, who will also question Darren Fletcher's long-term future after illness forced him out for much of the season.
Youngster Paul Pogba is also expected to leave the club after failing to agree terms on a new deal, with Juventus a potential destination.
Ferguson will be eager to keep pace with rivals Manchester City in the transfer market this summer, with Roberto Mancini looking to build on the club's first title success for 44 years.
As for Strootman, who will be without Champions League football next season should he stay with the Dutch giants, will be hoping for an opportunity to impress during this summer's championships.
