Abdellaoue: Liverpool fan
Manchester United target Moa Abdellaoue admits he is flattered at reports linking him with a move to England.
United are understood to have made an offer to take the 23-year-old, who has been dubbed the new Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, on trial
His club Valerenga are now believed to be talking with United and other interested parties about his future.
However, the player himself, who has just linked up with the Norway squad ahead of their friendly with Ukraine on Wednesday, admits he has not heard anything concrete about the interest in him.
Nice to be noticed
"I am not thinking about the rumours, but it's nice that clubs are taking notice of me." Abdellaoue told Nettavisen.
"It means that I am doing alright on the pitch.
"Of course it is great to be compared to Solskjaer but I am only Moa. I am the person I am. I play football and enjoy myself.
"I have not heard anything directly from United and got the news through the Norwegian media.
"I have not received any information from my adviser and do not know anything about the trial.
"But I cannot go around thinking about that sort of thing.
"What is most important for me right now is the match on Wednesday and that I play well against Ukraine."
Abdellaoue also revealed that he is actually a Liverpool fan.
"Liverpool are my club. I am a Liverpool supporter, although not a member of the supporters' club," he revealed.
