Man United target cools £20m move talk

Manchester United target Joao Miranda has cooled talk that he will be leaving Atletico Madrid anytime soon by revealing that he remains content in La Liga.

The Brazilian centre-back has been linked with the Red Devils of late amid suggestions he is no longer needed at the Vicente Calderon.

Although he played a key role for the Rojiblancos last term as they claimed a shock league title and made it all the way to the Champions League Final – which they lost to bitter rivals Real Madrid – Miranda’s future has been plunged into doubt by the emergence of Jose Gimenez.

The young Uruguayan has formed a good partnership with Diego Godin, which has limited his senior team-mate’s playing time.

The 30-year-old has been, as a result, linked with a £20m move, but he says that he has no interest in leaving Atleti:

“My future? All I can say is about the present, which is Atletico. I have a contract here and I am enjoying it,” he is quoted by talkSPORT.
