Manchester United transfer target Carlos Mane has admitted he's aware of interest from big clubs.
Speaking to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, the 19-year-old attacking midfielder said he remains focused on his football for Sporting Lisbon and Portugal under-21s.
The talented attacker has been dubbed the 'new Cristiano Ronaldo' as he is widely believed to be the most naturally gifted player to emerge from the Sporting academy since the 2014 Ballon d'Or winner.
His meteoric rise into the Sporting first-team has attracted attention for some of Europe's top clubs, with Manchester United thought to be watching him closely.
"It's always good to know that big clubs are interested in me, but now I'm focused on selection for the under-21s," said Mane.
Mane is set to feature for the Portugal under-21 team for the first team after he was selected, but he's being tipped in some quarters to make a late run for a place in the senior squad prior to the World Cup.
David Moyes will be backed with a significant transfer kitty at the end of the season, with some reports claiming he could have as much as £200m to spend.
