Football: `I'm not moving to Italy' - Giggs.

RYAN Giggs will never say never - but the Manchester United star admits he is unlikely to be tempted away from Old Trafford.

The Wales winger has been linked in the Italian press with a move to Serie A giants Inter Milan and, while he is flattered by the idea, Giggs insists his heart is in Manchester.

``To be linked to a big team is always a great pleasure,'' Giggs is quoted in Gazzetta dello Sport.

``But these are just words and not facts. Last year I signed a contract with Manchester United until 2006.

``I was tempted, but now I think I'll end my career with Man United.''

However, after watching Jaap Stam hurried through the Old Trafford exit when he moved to Lazio, Giggs knows the final decision is not his but Sir Alex Ferguson's.

``At Manchester United there is no room for sentimentality,'' added Giggs.

``If Ferguson decides for the sake of the team to sell a player, he will do it, as happened a while ago with Jaap Stam.''
