You are always flattered when big clubs are interested in you.
I want a new contract. I'm happy at United and I see my future here.
I set myself high standards on the pitch and I know I have not always lived up to them this season.
There is a hangover from a defeat like Denmark - ask any player about when they've had a bad game, it's still in there somewhere in the back of your mind.
