Cape Town - Manchester United may yet land Porto star Danilo after the player played down talk of a proposed move to Real Madrid.

According to Metro, Danilo is yet to decide on his future amid interest from several of Europe's top clubs.

Real Madrid were believed to be leading the race with Manchester United also interested in the Brazilian.

Liverpool are another club interested in acquiring his services as a replacement for Glen Johnson (Read that story HERE!).

"The interest of the big clubs is very important to me, but I have not spoken to anyone and I know nothing of any offer from Real Madrid," said the 23-year-old defender.

"At the moment I think only about this season, then we’ll talk about the future.

I’m having a great time with Porto and I’m focused on the championship and Champions League with them."

Danilo has 11 national caps to his name and has already featured 23 times for Porto in the league this season. He has scored three goals in the league and added a goal in his nine Champions League outings for the Portuguese club.

The Brazilian arrived at Porto for €13 million in January 2012.
