The Portugal international has been linked with United, Liverpool and Juventus since the Spanish season finished and he began to focus on Euro 2016.

But the 22-year-old, who shares the same agent as incoming United boss Jose Mourinho, has denied that he intends to use next month’s tournament as a shop window.

“At this moment, and I am very frank, I’m not worried about what will happen,” he said. “It’s all a mystery. The only certainty I have is that I’m here and I’m with the national team, which is already very good. Now the future is not worrying. I will not even look at the European Championship as a showcase to think about what might happen next.”

When the Portuguese journalists persisted with questions about his future, he smiled and added: “Probably if you make a call to the [Valencia] president, he may have a better answer than mine. I do not know what will happen, nor am I very worried.”

Super Deporte newspaper in Valencia claim the player is happy to stay at the La Liga club for the time being, but admit that club president Chan Lay Hoon could be tempted to cash in.

United appear to be in pole position for a deal considering super-agent Jorge Mendes’ connections to Mourinho and Valencia, but Juventus were reported to have agreed personal terms with the player this week.

However, Valencia’s £40million price-tag may be a figure only United, who will be keen to back Mourinho in the transfer market this summer, might be willing to pay.
