Aaron Martin, a target for both Manchester United and Manchester City, is “flattered” by the interest.
Martin has emerged as a potential target for both Manchester clubs this season, with United being linked in October.
City joined the race for the Espanyol left-back soon thereafter, and the bitter rivals could engage in a battle for the 20-year-old.
United do need a bloody left-back, mind you.
“The interest from other teams is flattering,” Martin admitted.
“But the truth is I am only thinking of Espanyol and I am very happy to be here, I feel that I am improving here and I enjoy helping my teammates.
“It’s important for me to play every week and to help the team, to keep pushing myself to improve as a player in the top league.
“My rise into the first-team has not changed me as a person, I like to keep my feet on the ground and continue to improve.”
