Leroy Sane has moved to distance himself from reports linking him with a summer transfer to Manchester United.

The Schalke midfielder has been touted as a possible target for the Red Devils, who on Friday morning confirmed the appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager.

Sane has also been touted as a target United’s local rivals Manchester City as both clubs look to strengthen their midfield options ahead of next season.

However, the 20-year-old insists that he is not paying any attention to the speculation linking him with a move away from Schalke and is instead focusing on Euro 2016.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Sane said: “I am here with a goal in mind and that is to be in the final Euro squad.

“I have not thought about any of this [speculation].

“I will see what happens on May 31. I still have a contract at Schalke and I feel well there. Everything else is in the background at the moment and my focus is on the Euros.”

United confirmed the appointment of Mourinho as the club’s new manager on a three-year contract on Friday morning after days of speculation liking hum with the Old Trafford job.

Mourinho will now address the summer transfer window ahead of his first full season in charge.
