United link pleases Tito

Published Add your comment

Rayo Vallecano defender Tito is pleased that Manchester United have been seen scouting him.

The 26-year-old full-back has been heavily linked with a move to the reigning Premier League champions, after it emerged that chief scout Martin Ferguson watched him in La Liga action at the weekend.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is looking for defensive reinforcements to further strengthen his Old Trafford squad this summer, and asked his brother to run the rule over one of his potential targets.

"I do not know if it was to watch me or a teammate," Tito told Spanish publication AS. "But, if so, it is an honour that a European giant, like Manchester United, are noticing me."

The Spaniard has been in impressive form for Vallecano this season, and is believed to have attracted interest from a number of top clubs. However, the defender insists that he is happy plying his trade in Madrid, and will not be distracted by continued speculation.

"I have two more years left on my Rayo contract and am happy here and would have no problem to continue," Tito added. "When the season ends we'll see what happens, but it is always nice to be noticed."

Manchester United have also been linked with a move for flying Valencia full-back Jordi Alba. But, after the 23-year-old's agent intimated his client is on the verge of signing a new contract at the Mestalla, Tito could be promoted to the top of Ferguson's summer wish list.
