Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf has denied he is set for a summer switch to Blackpool reports skysports.com.

The 23-year-old Senegalese front man, who spent time on loan at Blackburn Rovers last season, says he has not heard anything about a prospective bid from the Seasiders.

Diouf is currently on tour in the United States with the rest of the Manchester United squad, and looks to be making a good impression after netting in the Red Devils' latest friendly, a 7-0 victory over Seattle Sounders.

"I've not heard about that one," he said of Blackpool's reported interest on Sky Sports News. "People are asking me about Blackpool, but no one's spoken to me. It's all just rumours.

"Of course I'd like to stay at Manchester United, everyone dreams about playing for this club."


 

Despite Diouf's aspirations to remain at Old Trafford and fight for his place in Sir Alex Ferguson's first team, opportunities will likely be limited due to the club's plethora of attacking options.

"When I got a chance to be with them I always wanted to be here," he continued. "I want to win trophies here [at Manchester United].

"Right now I'm in America, not England. I'll do my best, but we'll see what happens after pre-season."
