Eintracht Frankfurt striker Andre Silva has claimed reports linking him with a move to Manchester United inspire him to become a better player.
The Portugal international has been earmarked as a potential summer signing for the Red Devils.
But the player had admitted to hearing reports of a potential move to Old Trafford, but sees it as motivation to perform better.
This is what Silva told O Jogo: “I’ve heard rumours, but that is it. Rumours are rumours… At the end of this season, it’s something that gives me more motivation to work, it’s a sign that what I have accomplished has borne fruit and the path has been good.”
