Eidur Gudjohnsen's agent has played down talk linking the player with a move to Manchester United.
The Barcelona forward has been linked with a move away from Camp Nou of late, having fallen down the pecking order of Frank Rijkaard's plans.
Reports emanating from Spain have suggested Manchester United are lining up a move for the Icelandic international in the summer.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is thought to be a big admirer of Gudjohnsen and is believed to be willing to bring the former Chelsea man back to England.
However, the player's father and agent Arnor Gudjohnsen insists the former Bolton man is determined to fight for his place and prove himself at Camp Nou.
"I know nothing about [interest from Manchester United]," Gudjohnsen told skysports.com.
"It has not been a good moment for Eidur as he not been getting a lot of chances to play games.
"I have heard nothing from Barcelona regarding Eidur's future.
"He is determined to prove himself at Barcelona and he wants to give it 100 per cent to be a success."
Barcelona's sport director Txiki Beguiristain insists the club will wait until the end of the season before making any decisions on possible transfers.
"Until the end of the season we are not in a position to touch the subject of exits or arrivals," Beguiristain told El Mundo Deportivo.
