Juventus winger Milos Krasic has no intention of moving back to Russia after attracting the attention of Zenit St Petersburg.
Officials from the latter are understood to have flown in to Turin to discuss a transfer given that the Russian window closes on 24 February.
However, speaking to TMW on Wednesday, agent Vlado Borozan insisted that the player has other intentions.
“As it stands right now, Milos is not thinking about a return to Russia,” the representative noted. “He was at CSKA Moscow for seven years.
“Despite Zenit being a great club, he wants to remain in the other part of Europe.
“However, the market over there closes at the end of this month and he could change his mind – even if I think that would be very difficult.
“He knows that he won’t find space in the Juventus team, but he’s sure about his choices.”
The 27-year-old Krasic has started just four Serie A games this term and he was left out of the squad for tonight’s Coppa Italia match with Milan.
