AC Milan defender Cristian Zapata, a reported target for Manchester United, claims he has no intention of forcing a move away from the San Siro either in January or at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old Colombia international only joined Milan on a permanent deal in the summer transfer window, but has been identified as a potential target for the Premier League champions in their pursuit of reinforcements.

It has been reported that David Moyes is keen on recruiting Zapata to strengthen his defensive options, while the player is also consider a potential long-term replacement for Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic.

Phil Neville is reported to have been to watch the centre-back in action this season with a view to a potential move for his services, despite the face he has been in Milan for only six months.

Zapata, however, is unaware of any supposed interest in his signature from Manchester United and is content with life in Milan at present.

"No, I do not know anything. I just think about Milan," he said, as reported by MEN.

"I have a contract until 2016 and I want to stay here."
