Benfica playmaker Nicolas Gaitan insists he is calm about rumours that he is a target for reigning Barclays Premier League champions Manchester United.
According to skysports.com, reports in the Portuguese press suggest that a €35million [£29.3m] fee has been agreed between the two clubs, and that the 23-year-old attacking midfielder will complete a move at the end of the current campaign.
Gaitan impressed Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson in both of Manchester United's UEFA Champions League clashes with Benfica, and it is those performances that are believed to have sparked interest in bringing him to Old Trafford.
However, United are understood to have distanced themselves from speculation linking them with the Argentine international, and Gaitan himself has insisted he is untroubled by the rumours.
"The interest of big clubs is not affecting my head," Gaitan told O Jogo. "I am calm about the rumours about Manchester United.
"It is certain and obvious that some clubs are interested in me and that signifies that I am doing well, but now my mission is to work and help Benfica to be successful.
"I am not desperate to be sold. I am very comfortable in Benfica because we are an excellent team and the people are happy with me.
"My future? I do not want any pressure and I wait for news. If, eventually, no concrete offers appear, it's not a problem."
