Middlesbrough’s brilliant young winger Stewart Downing is staying calm, despite speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.
Downing has made huge strides in recent weeks after he was given an extended run in Steve McClaren’s first team.
The 20-year-old's sensational form helped guide Boro to European success at Banik Ostrava, before his strike at Old Trafford earlier this month helped
his side to a 1-1 draw with Manchester United.
Red Devils chief Sir Alex Ferguson was full of praise for the England Under-21 star after seeing his clinical finish and reports have now linked
Downing with United - who were believed to be monitoring the youngster last season.
