Manchester United & Spurs target happy at Athletic Bilbao

Published Add your comment

Athletic Bilbao winger Iker Muniain insists he is relaxed about his future, despite alleged transfer interest from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, reports talkSPORT.

The 21-year-old has been the subject of intense speculation in recent months, with suggestions that he could swap San Mames for the Premier League this summer.

Red Devils boss David Moyes is rumoured to be keen on bringing Munian to Old Trafford, as he looks to further strengthen his squad at the end of the season.

Tim Sherwood has also been mooted as an admirer of the £16million-rated La Liga star, but after Tottenham spent big following the sale of Gareth Bale last summer, it's unclear how much money will be made available at White Hart Lane once the transfer window reopens.

Munian first appeared on English radars after his instrumental performance to help Bilbao overcome Manchester United in the Europa League in 2012/13, but Ernesto Valverde is confident of keeping the player in Spain because he is under contract until 2015.

The Spain international appears equally content with life with Los Leones, after reiterating his commitment to the club until the end of the current campaign.

"I am focused on the current season, I am playing well and I can improve," he said. "The president has been clear about my contract - there is nothing to add. We will talk about it at the next season."
