Manchester United target James Rodriguez has ruled out leaving Porto this summer, according to Sky Sports News.

The report claims that the Colombian has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks, with United ready to splash in excess of £20m on the exciting winger.

However, the 20-year-old has revealed he knows nothing about reported interest from Manchester United and insisted he is happy at the Estadio do Dragao and focused on winning more titles with Porto.

“I want to stay with FC Porto, I am happy and very pleased to be able to continue with the club.

“When the news came out about Manchester United, I knew nothing of it.

“I am looking ahead to next season and have a lot of expectations. I want to win more titles here.

“I will also have more duties and responsibilities next season.”

Rodriguez is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News

Rodriguez has established himself as one of the most highly-rated youngsters in Europe after a string of impressive displays in Portugal,  scoring 15 goals in 41 appearances since joining Porto in 2010.

    With a player like Geovanni dos Santos having trouble settling at Tottenham, I see no reason as to why Manchester United have not made an offer. He exceeds all the expectations of a prolific and creative midfielder, he is young and he would probably come at a much cheaper price tag than any player of his caliber. Another option is Xerdan Shaqiri.. Before progressing into signing players, I feel Manchester United needs to let go of some of the players that are holding the team back. The game has evolved and some of the players have simply failed to keep up.
