Ukrainian based defender speaks about possible summer move

Manchester United have been linked with many defenders since last summer, with only Marcos Rojo signing for the Old Trafford club when he joined from Sporting Clube de Portugal for a £16 million fee last summer, with Nani heading to his former club on a season long loan. Louis van Gaal was also linked with Mats Hummels, Raphaël Varane and Marquinhos with Aleksander Dragović being linked during the January transfer window, with no solid interest being reported for the player as Van Gaal decided not to make a move for players during the winter transfer window with goalkeeper Víctor Valdés becoming his seventh signing at the club.

Dragović has also been linked to the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United recently, but a move to the Theatre of Dreams could well be on the cards. Speaking to Die Presse and reported in England by the Daily Star, Dragović said:

“I would be lying if I said that something is not buzzing at the back of my head.

“Such a thing can never be treated in a cold manner.

“As long as there are no concrete offers on the table, I am not going to deal with it in detail.”

It does seem that the Austrian central defender will leave the Ukraine in the summer, but the interest from Manchester United may not be as solid as the media made out during the January transfer window. I am sure Louis van Gaal and Ryan Giggs have their targets lined up, and for all we know Dragović could be on that list, but I don’t think we will find anything out until the summer when new signings are made. Mats Hummels is continually linked to the club, as are a few Netherland internationals; Stefan De Vrij and Bruno Martins Indi, but it is easy to link those to United being that Van Gaal coached them for the national team until the FIFA World Cup ended last summer with the Netherlands finishing in third place.
