Cape Town - Manchester United target Moussa Dembele has poured cold water on his chances of leaving Scottish side Celtic before next season.

France Under-21 international Dembele has been watched on several occasions this season by United after netting 17 goals for Celtic since his summer move from English Championship outfit Fulham.

United are not alone in tracking the striker, with Arsenal and Paris St-Germain also making scouting trips to watch the 20-year-old.

But despite Celtic being eliminated from the Champions League at the group stages, Dembele insists he will be playing for the SPL league leaders in the competition next season.

"For me, I am here until the end of my contract and for many years,” said Dembele.

“It [the speculation] is not something I think about. I don’t listen to those stories.

"I want to keep playing in the Champions League and keep playing in the Champions League for Celtic first.

"Because I think I will stay here 100%. I want to keep improving and keep developing as a player."

Celtic suffered a 2-0 defeat On Wednesday at the hands of Barcelona thanks to a brace by Lionel Messi that ended the Scottish side's hopes of qualifying for the Europa League.
