Cape Town - Talk of a move to Lazio or Roma are untrue, says Manchester United striker Robin van Persie.
With just one season left on his current Old Trafford deal and coming off a poor season personally, the Dutch striker has been linked with a cut-price move to the Serie A.
According to teamtalk.com, speculation of his imminent departure from Manchester was increased last week when the former Arsenal star was spotted in Rome.
However, the player has now distanced himself from the transfer rumours, saying that his visit to Italy was merely for a well-deserved holiday.
"All the rumours about Rome as a city are true: it is a beautiful place," Van Persie told Voetbal International.
