Atletico Madrid defender Miranda has claimed on Brazilian radio that he has offers from Spain and England.
The 29-year-old was one of the stars of Ateltico's historic season which saw them win La Liga while also reaching the UEFA Champions League final.
Now a host of Atletico's key players are being linked with big-money moves away from the club and Miranda is no different.
Barcelona and Manchester United are widely reported to be leading the chase, and Miranda has now confirmed that he does have options in both Spain and England.
"I have some offers and we are negotiating," he told Brazil's Radio Espn.
"I have offers from Spanish and English leagues and from some less important ones too.
"My agent is in Europe to decide my future, my buy-out fee at Atletico Madrid is €30million, but that can be negotiated."
World Cup snub
Miranda was not included in Brazil's World Cup squad, and he admits he is disappointed not to have been given a call-up by Luiz Felipe Scolari.
"I was sad (when I was not called up). I was hopeful of getting called up and it was a big disappointment not to have been," he admitted.
"I am in a very good moment both technically and physically. I could be helping the national team by being one of the 23 but I will be supporting them."
