Borussia Dortmund managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke claims it will take a colossal bid for Manchester United to prise Neven Subotic away from the Westfalenstadion.

The 21-year-old Serbia defender, who is under contract at Dortmund until 2014, has been linked in the German press with a move to Old Trafford.

But Watzke was quoted in the Bild newspaper as saying: "If Manchester want to have him, they have to sign over two oil fields to us. Or cart over at least two big lorries tightly packed full of English banknotes..."

Subotic himself is also not thinking about a move.

"It is not secret that I feel happy in Dortmund and I would still like to win something on the European stage with the team," he said. "Therefore I am not even thinking about a transfer at the moment."

Subotic, who played under-17 and under-20 football for the USA, joined Dortmund from Mainz in 2008 and plays alongside United centre-back Nemanja Vidic for Serbia.
