The 29-year-old would not be drawn on speculation involving his future, despite being watched by Jose Mourinho recently

Marko Arnautovic has played down rumours of Manchester United interest.

The Austria international attacker played a major role as he helped David Moyes’ West Ham side avoid relegation from the Premier League last season

The Red Devils were said to be watching him against Russia, a match his side won 1-0 , and after they stunned Germany 2-1 on Saturday, he refused to be drawn on the reports.

“It’s nice to hear,” the 29-year-old told Vivaro News when asked about the interest of the Premier League runners up. “I’ve not heard anything from my brother, my agent. You can keep asking this question, you’ll never hear the answer from me.”

Even though Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho was spotted in the stands, he would not be drawn on the Portuguese’s presence.

“He was on holiday, he told you,” he protested. “I haven’t spoken to him, he was on holidays.”

Arnautovic scored 11 times and created six more goals for the Hammers in the Premier League last term, despite a difficult start to the season under Slaven Bilic. Once form Man Utd boss Moyes took charge, though, he found his form, notably bagging a winner against Chelsea.
