Diouf: Keen to stay at Manchester United and fight for first-team place
Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf has played down reports linking him with a move to Blackpool.
The Senegal marksman, who spent time on loan with Blackburn Rovers last season, was reportedly wanted by Ian Holloway.
Diouf is currently on The Red Devils' pre-season tour of the United States and he has not heard anything from the Bloomfield Road outfit.
The 23-year-old ex-Molde man wants to stay at Old Trafford and fight for a first-team place despite the fact that manager Sir Alex Ferguson has a plethora of strikers at his disposal.
"I've not heard about that one," he said of Blackpool's reported interest on Sky Sports News.
"People are asking me about Blackpool, but no one's spoken to me. It's all just rumours.
"Right now I'm in America, not England.
"Of course I'd like to stay at Manchester United, everyone dreams about playing for this club.
"When I got a chance to be with them I always wanted to be here. I want to win trophies here.
"I'll do my best, but we'll see what happens after pre-season."
