Elm agent waits for United call

Manchester United target Rasmus Elm is still waiting to hear officially from the club, according to the player's agent.

The 23-year-old Swedish international midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks, with the AZ Alkmaar star continuing to impress in the Eredivisie.

Speculation had even gone as far as to suggest that a pre-contract agreement had been signed to bring the player to the Red Devils, something which is not the case, despite the interest from the champions being described as 'flattering'.

"No, I am still waiting for Sir Alex (Ferguson) to call me," representative Patrick Mork told the International Business Times UK.

"There has been talk about Manchester United's interest for months, but I have not heard anything from them. It's too much rumours at the moment, so there really isn't very much to say."

Mork was also questioned on whether AZ would be willing to part with the player in January, and whilst he didn't dismiss the possibility entirely, he admitted that it would have to be an attractive offer to the Dutch side.

"It's always a combination that AZ have to be satisfied with the offer and that the player has to be willing to go. Rasmus is very open and is not closing any doors," added the representative.

"He doesn't have any preference for clubs. Of course it's flattering when clubs like Manchester United is mentioned, but how big an interest they have, I don't know."

The return of Paul Scholes has, for now at least, played down the reports of a move, and with Sir Alex Ferguson hinting he's more than happy with his squad, it's unlikely to happen this month.
