Movers and shakers
Although he stressed he was not angling for a move while his focus was on Euro 2008, he was vague about his future following the summer showpiece.
When asked about United's interest on radio station Canal Sur, he said: "It is a good sign that big clubs are interested in me, but at the moment I am not considering anything. I have a good contract with Madrid and I am concentrating on the national team. When Euro 2008 finishes we will see what happens."
Meanwhile, Lyon striker Karim Benzema is set to remain at the French champions until 2010, according to the club's president Jean-Michel Aulas.
"With €40 million (Dh220m) or €50m euros we would sell Benzema's ear," Aulas joked to reporters. "I am sure that he will stay with Lyon until the 2010 World Cup finals."
Elsewhere, Barcelona have agreed a deal to sell full-back Gianluca Zambrotta to AC Milan. The Spanish club confirmed yesterday that the Italy international will join the Rossoneri in a deal worth nine million euros. Milan, who are on the hunt for a goalkeeper after being priced out of a move for Celtic's Artur Boruc, will face a fight if they hope to sign PSV stopper Heurelho Gomes. Tottenham are believed to be interested in signing the keeper who saved the penalty which knocked Juande Ramos's side out of the last season's Uefa Cup.
