Manchester City and Chelsea target Angel Di Maria has played down speculation linking him to a potential January move and claims he is focused on Benfica.
The Argentina international has become a hot-property with a number of Premier League clubs thinking of signing the player during the January transfer window.
City are reported to be leading the hunt for his services while Chelsea, who have seen their transfer ban suspended, are also said to be keen.
Di Maria is well aware of the increasing clamour for his services, and has previously admitted to being flattered by the interest.
He is, however, keen to distance himself from the rumours and concentrate his efforts on helping Benfica to be a success.
“I have not spoken to anybody and the only thought in my head at the moment is that I would like to continue playing for Benfica for many years,” he said.
While Di Maria has sought to curb the mounting speculation regarding his future, it appears he could be sold were the right offer to be made.
