Victor Lindelof has reaffirmed his commitment to Manchester United after the defender's agent raised doubts about his future.
Having endured a difficult first season at Old Trafford following his arrival from Benfica in 2017, the 24-year-old's impressive, consistent performances saw him finish runner-up in the club's Player of the Year vote for 2018-19.
Lindelof's form led to reported interest from Barcelona and agent Hasan Cetinkaya said his client "is in the orbit of a great European club, but leaving United depends on the English club".
But at a time when the future of several big names is up in the air, the Sweden international appeared to rule out a summer departure.
"I'm very, very happy to be a Manchester United player," Lindelof said in Perth.
"I'm excited for the new season to start. That's my answer. I'm very happy here."
Lindelof is set to make his first pre-season appearance against Leeds on Wednesday as the centre-back looks to build on an impressive campaign.
"It's my third season here now, I've been through it," he added. "I know what it is to sign for this club and to play for it, and of course to get a little bit of criticism sometimes. That's part of the game."

Paul Pogba has been included in Manchester United's squad for their pre-season tour.
The France midfielder had been a doubt for the trip as reports that he is angling for a move away from Old Trafford picked up pace last week.
But he will travel with the team as they head to Australia on Sunday afternoon to kick-off their preparations for the new season.
Romelu Lukaku, another player linked with a summer departure, is also included among the 28-man party - as are new signings Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will take on Perth Glory and Leeds before continuing on for pre-season games in Singapore and China.
Pogba has struggled for consistent form since returning to Old Trafford in a club-record deal in 2016.
He was included in the PFA Team of the Year last season but split opinion among supporters and reportedly had a falling out with former United boss Jose Mourinho.
Talking to The Times last week, Pogba's agent Mino Raiola said he had made the club aware he was looking to move the player on and offered no assurances that the 26-year-old would travel for the tour.
"Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We are in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are," said Raiola.
PA understands that both Matteo Darmian and Fred are absent due to family reasons and will link up with the squad later in the tour.
Andreas Pereira has signed a new four-year contract at Manchester United, the Premier League club have announced.
The Belgian-born Brazil midfielder is now committed to the Old Trafford outfit until 2023, with the option to extend for a further year.
The 23-year-old, who came through the United Academy, enjoyed a breakthrough 2018-19 campaign and has made 35 first-team appearances.
After beginning the campaign on the fringes of selection under Jose Mourinho, he was given a run in the side in the second half of the season by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Pereira told the club's website, www.manutd.com: "I have spent so long in Manchester that I now regard the city and the club as my home and I'm extremely happy to continue my career here.
"The manager has shown great faith in me and I can't wait to get this campaign started under him."
