Nemanja Matic insists he's not pushing to leave Benfica.

The former Chelsea midfielder has attracted an approach from Manchester United in the past week.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson sees Matic as a potential replacement for Paul Scholes, but the Serb insists: "I think I've improved a lot at Benfica, but I think I can still go further.

"I'm in a good moment but I still have much to learn. Will I stick around?

"I'm just thinking of Benfica, of course I want to stay because it is the biggest club in Portugal. We always compete to win in all competitions so I'm happy here."
