Fletcher plays down speculation

Published Add your comment

Darren Fletcher insists the only person he will listen to about any speculation linking him with a move away from Old Trafford is Sir Alex Ferguson.

As most of the talk around Manchester United this summer has concerned Cristiano Ronaldo, not too much attention has been devoted to Fletcher. Yet, after finding his first-team opportunities severely restricted last term, it is little wonder some pundits believe it would be better if the Scotland international moved on.

However, the 23-year-old is not allowing himself to get distracted by such rumours, tellin MUTV: "The speculation does not get on my nerves. At this time of year, people make news out of nothing. You learn to deal with that here."
