The agent of Manchester United and Arsenal target Luis Muriel has announced that the Colombian forward is likely to stay at Udinese next season.

The 21-year-old has been outstanding on loan at Serie A side Lecce this season, attracting interest from several top European clubs.

But Udinese, who were initially expected to let the player leave at the end of the season for a fee of around £8million, are now believed to be keen on keeping him.

Speaking to Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mauro Cesarini, the player’s agent, said: ‘In normal circumstances he will wear the shirt of Udinese next season.

‘There are many rumours about English and Italian clubs but I have not had formal contact with any club.

‘I think he needs to mature a year and his immediate future should be the Udinese although the club will have the last word.’
