FC Twente midfielder Dusan Tadic admits he's flattered by speculation linking him with Manchester United.

Speaking to Serbian newspaper Sportski Zurnal, Tadic said it was an honour to be linked with a club like United - but insisted he's only thinking about improving as a player with FC Twente.

The Serbian international has been excellent since signing for the Dutch club in 2012, hitting 18 goals in 48 appearances from an attacking midfield position.

And he's started this season in exceptional form, scoring five goals and providing six assists in 10 Eredivisie games.

That's prompted renewed speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford. But Tadic insists he's not listening to the media rumours.

"The Dutch media have taken over," Tadic told Sportski Zurnal. "I am honoured that such a big club is interested in me.

"It is the dream of many players to continue at Manchester United. But I do not worry about what the newspapers say, I focus entirely on FC Twente."

The 24-year-old midfielder has spent the last three years in Dutch football, and was first linked with a Premier League move earlier this year following Twente's failure to qualify for European football.

United are expected to be busy in the January transfer window, with a creative midfielder thought to be a priority for Old Trafford boss David Moyes.
