The Argentine schemer had been reported as saying he was looking to move back to Italy this summer after failing to settle to life in England.
However, agent Fernando Hidalgo has now stated that Veron has his heart set on seeing out his contract with Manchester United.
"Veron never said that he wants to leave Manchester," said Hidalgo.
"He feels very good in England, he's happy and he wants to honour the contract that bounds him to the Red Devils for another three years."
Hidalgo added that stories linking Veron with a return to Serie A had come about from the player's assertion that he would like to return to Italy once his deal at Old Trafford expires.
"Everything was born from that phrase, but he wasn't saying he has a will to leave," he continued.
"He's really happy to stay in England and he will participate with Manchester's meeting after his holidays on July 8."
However, in a further twist, Hidalgo did state that the player would consider a move away from the Premiership champions should United decide to accept any bid for him.
"If there were serious proposals and these were accepted by Manchester, and they were also acceptable to Veron, at that time we would talk about them," the agent concluded.
