Rami not distracted by United links

Valencia defender Adil Rami insists he is committed to the La Liga outfit, in the wake of reports linking him with a move to Manchester United.

One Frenchman chases another.

Recent rumours suggest that United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is keen on taking Rami to Old Trafford, especially after a season-ending injury to Nemanja Vidic and doubts over the long-term fitness of Rio Ferdinand.

However, Rami has moved quickly to pledge his future to Valencia, and reveals he is keen on creating history at the Mestalla.

"Currently, I am only thinking about Valencia and fighting for a major trophy like the Copa del Rey," Rami told Superdeporte.

"Here I feel well and my desire is to become an important player of this historic team."

Nonetheless, the French international admits to being pleased at being linked to a club of United's stature.

"Of course, the interest of a team like United is nice, but it is not my goal."

Rami only joined Valencia this summer after a four year spell with Lille, where he won the Ligue 1 and Coupe de France double last season.
