AC Milan defender Cristian Zapata claims to know nothing about links to Manchester United. The 27-year-old Colombian joined Milan in 2012 and reports in England claim coach Phil Neville had personally scouted him in recent weeks.

But, when asked about United after Monday's 2-2 draw with Roma, Zapata told Italian television: "I do not know anything.

"I am just thinking about Milan. I have a contract until 2016 and I want to stay here."
