Radamel Falcao insists that he is not taking any notice of rumours linking him with a move from Atletico Madrid to Manchester United.

Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao has attempted to move himself away from speculation linking him with a summer move to Manchester United.

The Colombian striker has been heavily tipped to leave Atletico at the end of the season, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid being touted as potential suitors.

Recent reports have suggested that the Red Devils have entered the running for the prolific forward's signature and sent scouts to watch Falcao score twice against Granada on Sunday.

"In recent weeks I have tried to isolate myself and not think about the rumours about my future," Falcao told Colombian radio station RCN.

"I do not really know where [talk of joining United] has come from, that is part of the press. I'm focused only on Atletico Madrid. I do not let the market rumours affect my performance."

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson dismissed the speculation last weekend.
