The 23-year old Swedish midfielder's name continues to pop up with the reigning English champions and although he is unsure if the rumours are accurate, he is happy to be linked with the Old Trafford outfit.

You have to take rumours for what they are, but it is obviously flattering if there is some truth in it," Elm told Sportbladet.

"I don't close the door to any league. But the most important thing is to develop here and do as well as I can in Holland."
