Manchester United transfer link flatters Danish defender

Lille defender Simon Kjaer is, quite understandably, flattered by links with a transfer to Manchester United this summer. But the Denmark international claims he is not ‘wasting’ his time harbouring hopes of a hypothetical move to Old Trafford.

Kjaer has been one of the most consistent central defenders in Ligue 1 this season and the composed displays he has produced have prompted suggestions he could secure a transfer to a club of more prominent standing.

Manchester United are expected to be in the market for at least one centre-back during the summer transfer window, given that Nemanja Vidic will leave and Rio Ferdinand may retire, and Kjaer is one of a number of targets who appear to be under consideration from David Moyes.

The 25-year-old, though, is not allowing speculation about his future to hinder his performances for the remainder of the campaign, with Kjaer intent on helping Lille achieve a place in the Champions League for next season.

"It is of course always flattering to be linked with big clubs," Kjaer told Danish newspaper BT.

"But I am not wasting my thoughts on rumours about other clubs.

"I am spending all my efforts and keep my focus entirely on reaching my goal that we will qualify for the Champions League next season."
