Carlos Soler has remained coy when quizzed about the speculation linking him with a possible transfer to Manchester United in the future.

There have been reports in the British media in recent days suggesting that Soler could be set to join the Red Devils from Valencia in the January transfer window, as he is Jose Mourinho’s top target.

It remains to be seen whether those claims are anything more than media speculation at this stage, but the 20-year-old central midfielder has now insisted that he knows nothing of the reported interest.

Coler told Spanish radio station Cadena Cope when asked about the interest from Manchester United: “You already know it. I’m focused on Valencia.

“Regarding those things [the interest from Manchester United] I know nothing. It would be foolish to think about those things right now.

“I have to be focused at Valencia. I have a lot of years left [in my contract] and that’s what I have to do.”

Soler has scored one goal and has made four assists in 11 appearances in La Liga this season to make an impressive start to the 2017-18 campaign.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks as the January transfer window draws nearer.

Jose Mourinho is likely to want to bolster his squad in the new year as he aims to give his team what they need to catch Manchester City in the race for the title.

Manchester United return to Champions League action on Wednesday night with a trip to Switzerland to take on Basel.
