Rangers star Nikica Jelavic claims Manchester United are preparing a £13million swoop for his services in the summer.
The striker, who has been a revelation at Ibrox since recovering from injury in January, netting 18 goals for the Gers, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the Croatian media.
A switch to United would seem unlikely given the amount of firepower already at their disposal, with Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Dimitar Berbatov in their ranks.
But Croatia international Jelavic has confirmed reports the Premier League giants are chasing his signature.
Jelavic told the Daily Record: "I know United are interested. My agent has established contact with them but that's all I know.
"My agent has mentioned a figure of £13million and I came to Rangers for £4m so it would be a big gain for the club."
Jelavic has helped push Rangers towards a third successive Scottish Premier League title this season, which they could wrap up with victory over Kilmarnock on Sunday.
And despite the transfer talk surrounding him, the 25-year-old insists he is fully focused on helping them finish the job.
He added: "I would only think of a transfer in the summer. I'm fine here and enjoying every moment.
"The Rangers fans give me goosebumps - they really love me and I am looking forward to the Kilmarnock game on Sunday.
"If we win, it will be the first title I have won where I have been one of the key figures. I would call it my first real title."
