Midfielder opens up on possible move to Manchester United days before Euro 2016 final


Portugal star Joao Mario says he is fully focused on the Euro 2016 Championship final amid rumours that he is a target for Manchester United and Internazionale.

The 23-year-old and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho share the same agent, Jorge Mendes, and recent reports have claimed that the Red Devils want to add the youngster to their squad.

But the midfielder has refused to discuss the rumours.

"[It's] two days away from playing a final – my only focus is on playing this final," he said.

"My future is only [the next] two days – to the European Championship final.

"Critics are a part of football.

"We [Portugal] don't care about them. We don't want to win to have our revenge, we want to win for the fans.

"We above all believe in ourselves, the coach was the first one to transmit this spirit. There will always be criticism but we believe in ourselves.

"The key is believing, [to] never stop believing, correcting mistakes, keeping strong, [staying] together even in the not so good moments, like in [the] group stage.

"Keeping solid, we were very happy to qualify. We believe in our colleagues next to us – this is the spirit that brought us here."
