Atletico Madrid defender Miranda has confirmed that he is in talks over a move with clubs in England and Spain interested - and Manchester United are reportedly one of them.

United have been strongly linked with the 29-year-old centre-back, who has been valued at £24m by his club.

And speaking to Radio Espn in Brazil today as reported by Sky Sports in England, Miranda revealed that clubs in the Premier League and La Liga are keen to sign him this summer.

"I have some offers and we are negotiating," he said to Radio Espn. "I have offers from Spanish and English leagues and from some less important ones too.

"My agent is in Europe to decide my future, my buy-out with Atletico Madrid is €30m (£24m), but that can be negotiated."

Miranda starred for Atletico as Diego Simeone's side won the La Liga title and reached the final of the Champions League.

But despite an impressive individual season the defender is not part of Brazil's World Cup squad for the tournament on home soil. It kicks off this Thursday as Brazil take on Croatia.

While United are thought to be one of the clubs talking to Miranda from the Premier League, the report says Barcelona may be the team from Spain interested in signing him.

Carles Puyol retired this summer, and the Catalan giants are looking for a replacement heading into next season. At Old Trafford, Louis Van Gaal will be without Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand so defensive reinforcements may be necessary.
