Recent reports have suggested that United had handed the Dutch international an ultimatum regarding a move to Old Trafford, something the manager has strongly denied.
"Absolute nonsense," said Ferguson. "I have never discussed him. There is nothing new."
Meanwhile, the 69-year-old boss has heaped praise upon Tom Cleverley after the midfielder's performance in the friendly victory over Barcelona.
"[Central midfield] is an area we have to find a solution for," revealed Ferguson.
"That is why we played Tom Cleverley today. Physically he is not the strongest but he is wiry and has a great idea of the game.
"He is a good footballer and was our best player today. His discipline was terrific. He is a quick passer of the ball and has good eyes.
"It was a big night for him. He is a big, strong possibility for us to start the season."
Cleverley, 21, spent the whole of last season on loan at Wigan Athletic.
