The former Chelsea defender was strongly linked with a return to London in a management capacity after Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace and Fulham parted company with their coaches.

The two clubs subsequently looked elsewhere - to Tony Pulis and Rene Meulensteen respectively - and Petrescu, who joined Dinamo in August 2012 on a three-year deal, has no intention of leaving his current job.

In comments reported by Dolce Sport, Petrescu is quoted as saying: "Offers have been made and will be. We'll see what is going to happen in the future.

"We had some discussions in England but I could not get there.

"I have a year-and-a-half on my contract with Dinamo Moscow. I've said it before and I repeat - I do not want to leave until either my contract expires or Dinamo fire me.

"If I want to stay here, it means I feel good here."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
