Argentina midfielder Angel Di Maria is keen to concentrate on his career with Benfica amid reports linking him with a move to the Premier League.
Manchester rivals United and City and leaders Chelsea have all been mooted as possible suitors for the talented 21-year-old.
But the former Rosario Central player insists he knows nothing about the ongoing speculation and is thinking only of his current club.
"I have my mind only focused on Benfica," he told A Bola.
"I am surprised about what is being said, so the only thing that I can say when I read the news is that I only have my mind on Benfica and the interests of the team.
"I don't want to think about a transfer because as there hasn't been any official proposal I can't talk about being transferred.
"And that is why I repeat all the time that for the moment I only keep my mind on Benfica."
