Granada defender Guilherme Siqueira admits it is a thrill to be linked with Manchester United.

The 25-year old Brazilian-born Italian left-back was watched by United's chief European scout Martin Ferguson on Sunday as interest in his services begins to heat up.

It is suggested that Valencia have joined the likes of Barcelona and Benfica as clubs who are keen on Siqueira but he seems to be more taken by the fact that England's champions-elect are giving him plenty of attention.

"I am very happy with this news. If a good proposition arrives I am open to studying the subject," he said.
