Oviedo would consider Manchester United move

The FC Copenhagen defender says he is "flattered" after being linked with Sir Alex Ferguson's side, and admitted that the speculation will drive him to improve as a player

FC Copenhagen full-back Bryan Oviedo admitted he would consider a move to Manchester United if they were to put in a bid for him.

The 22-year-old has impressed in his performances for the Danish side which have lead to rumours of a possible transfer to the Premier League this summer.

United are reportedly in the market for a left-back to provide competition for Patrice Evra, with Everton's Leighton Baines also being heavily linked.

Oviedo revealed he was flattered to see his name being touted as a target of the Red Devils and believes the speculation will drive him to improve as a player.

"I was very proud the first time I saw my name in the English newspapers regarding interest from Manchester United and it made me even more motivated and determined to improve as a player," Oviedo told bold.dk.

"It is very important for my career that the big teams know who I am.

"At the moment I'm happy to stay in Copenhagen, where my home is, but I have to seriously consider my options if I get an interesting offer.

"I have to decide what is best for my family and me."
