AZ Alkmaar star Rasmus Elm has admitted he would be interested in joining Manchester United.

The 23-year-old Swedish international midfielder has been heavily linked with a January move to the Barclays Premier League, having attracted attention after a series of scintillating performances in Holland.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been credited with an interest in Elm, and is reportedly considering an attempt to bring him to Old Trafford when the transfer window reopens in January.

In an interview with Sportbladet, Elm confessed he was flattered by speculation suggesting he could be on his way to Manchester United, but insists he remains focused on his career at AZ.

"You have to take rumours for what they are, but it is obviously flattering if there is some truth in it," he said. "I don't close the door to any league.

"But the most important thing is to develop here and do as well as I can in Holland."

Ferguson strengthened his midfield ranks in the summer with the addition of Ashley Young, but has yet to fill the void left by the retirement of Paul Scholes - and so could step up his interest in Elm in the New Year.
