Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna has revealed he is aware of reported interest from Manchester United, but will not discuss the prospect of a move until the end of the current campaign.

The Italy international has garnered the attention of a number of Europe's elite clubs this season after impressing in the heart of defence, and was reportedly watched by a scouting team dispatched by United during Torino's 2-1 loss to Roma at the weekend.

Despite growing speculation suggesting that a switch could be imminent, the 24-year-old is refusing to think beyond the current season, remaining focused on Torino's efforts to secure their Serie A status for another year.

"If they [Manchester United] came to see me, this obviously flatters me, but right now I don't think about the future," Ogbonna told Sky Sport Italia.

'I live in the present and, just like all my team mates, I think only of Torino's salvation.'

Torino have struggled this season and are currently in 15<sup>th place in Serie A, and currently lie eight points above the relegation zone following their recent defeat at the Stadio Olimpico.

Ogbonna, despite being side-lined for two months earlier in the campaign due to a persistent hernia problem, has played an integral role in the Torino side, establishing himself as one of Italy's brightest defensive hopes after making his debut for the Azzurri in 2011.

Ogbonna's growing number of suitors across the continent has led to Torino club president Urbano Cairo placing a €20 million price tag on the defender, a figure that is unlikely to deter Sir Alex Ferguson should the club wish to move forward with a reported summer move.

The Italy international is just one defensive option United have been linked with throughout the season, with Benfica's Ezequiel Garay another name heavily linked with a summer move to Old Trafford.

The Argentina international has enjoyed a stand out campaign for the Primeira Liga leaders this season after failing to establish himself at Real Madrid earlier in his career, and has once again found himself linked with moves to some of Europe's biggest clubs.
