Interest flatters Brondby starlet

Brondby starlet Nicolai Boilesen admits he is flattered by the number of clubs reported to be chasing his signature, but has not revealed if he is close to a move. Premier League champions Manchester United and rivals Chelsea have long been linked with the defender, while Inter Milan and Juventus are said to have entered the race. United and Chelsea were thought to be close to signing Boilesen, who has also been linked with Ajax, last summer before opting to wait on a move. The 17-year-old confesses he feels privileged to be rated by some of Europe's top clubs, but has not offered any hint regarding his long-term plans. He told Ekstra Bladet: "I am flattered that all these clubs are interested." United manager Sir Alex Ferguson last went head-to-head with Chelsea in the transfer market during the saga surrounding John Obi Mikel's arrival in England.
