Lazio star Felipe Anderson has ruled out the chance of joining Manchester United this summer, insisting his future is at the Serie A club.
United continue to be linked with the 22-year-old playmaker having reportedly kept tabs on his performances during the 2014-15 season.
Anderson, who has been valued at £30m, scored 11 goals as he helped Lazio qualify for the Champions League where they could still meet United in a play-off in August.
Sightings of Robin van Persie in Rome last weekend sparked suggestions the Dutchman could be used as a bargaining tool in United's attempts to lure the Brazilian to Old Trafford, but Anderson has brought speculation over his future to a swift end.
"Next year, All I know I'll be playing for Lazio," Anderson told reporters. "I only recently renewed my contract for another five years. I am thinking about that shirt, and nothing else. I don't know of any offers, my future is at Lazio."
In a move that further dismissed the idea of van Persie being used as a makeweight in a deal to sign Anderson, the United striker strongly denied suggestions he was in the Italian capital to discuss a transfer, insisting he was just on holiday.
Lazio have also vehemently denied suggestions of talks with the ex-Arsenal captain. Lazio club president Claudio Lotito laughed off suggestions that the United striker was in town over the weekend to sign for the club, labelling those reports as ''rubbish'' sparked by an agent spreading false rumours.
The club's technical co-ordinator Igli Tare, would later admit his admiration for the striker, but suggested his wage demands meant he was out of Lazio's reach.
Lazio could face United in August's Champions League's play-off, the draw for which will take place in Nyon on 7 August.
