NEC Nijmegen winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh is shocked by the interest of Manchester United. Jahanbakhsh has impressed watching United scouts posted to see NEC teammate Marnick Vermijl, on-loan from Old Trafford, in action.

"It's flattering when United speaks positively about you and it feels good that I read in the media that they want me," said Jahanbakhsh.

"I find it interesting and my friends talk about it with me, but at the moment I try not to take it too seriously.

"Manchester United is a very big club. I will work hard in any case to be successful."
