A report in Italy last week suggested that the Red Devils were interested in a potential swoop to sign Pellegrini to bolster their midfield in the upcoming transfer window.
The same article claimed that Manchester United were prepared to double the 22-year-old’s wages in an attempt to lure the Italy international to Old Trafford.
Corriere dello Sport even claimed that Pellegrini’s agent met with Manchester United’s representatives in the English capital earlier this month to hold discussions.
However, Pellegrini’s agent Giampiero Pocetta has now emphatically ruled out a potential move to Manchester United from AS Roma in the summer, underlining the playmaker’s continued commitment to the Italian side.
“I’m sorry that rumours have spread about financial aspects relating to him and his team-mates, that for Lorenzo have never been important,” Pocetta told Corriere dello Sport, as quoted by Sky Sports. “He doesn’t live for meetings, especially financial ones.
“He’s getting what he deserves on the pitch, and the rumours about the transfer market have never distracted him nor disturbed him.”
He added: “Pellegrini is only thinking about improving with, and for, Roma.
“These issues don’t count for now, it’s normal that Pellegrini is liked. Lorenzo is happy though, he’s already chosen Roma once.
“Then, when it’s time, we’ll sit down with Monchi [Roma sporting director] again.”
Pellegrini is currently on a deal thought to be worth around €1m per year, which is set to run until 2022 at last season’s Champions League semi-finalists.
The Italian midfielder has scored one goal and has made two assists in nine games in the Serie A this season, attracting interest from some top European clubs.
Pellegrini won favour with AS Roma supporters after he got on the score-sheet in a 3-1 victory over Lazio in the Rome derby in September.
His first goal in the Champions League came in a 2-1 victory over CSKA Moscow in their European outing earlier this month.
