Velez Sarsfield midfielder Thiago Almada: I really like Man City - and Simeone

Velez Sarsfield midfielder Thiago Almada insists he's not getting carried away with fresh transfer interest.

Almada is being linked with Atletico Madrid and Manchester City this week.

And the 19 year-old told TNT Sport: "I saw the rumours, but I haven't been told anything, neither my representative, nor the club, nor anything.

"I don't even think about it. Now I want to continue giving to the club, then I will see what happens and what is best for me and my family. Now I have my head in Vélez."

On City, he said: “I really like Manchester City, I watched Carlos Tevez when he played on Saturday mornings. I play as Manchester City on PlayStation, I always liked them."

And on the idea of being coached by Diego Simeone at Atletico, Almada added: "It motivates me to continue training and keep improving."
