Aleksandar Dragovic tempted by Manchester United move

Dynamo Kiev defender Aleksandar Dragovic has given some thought to a possible move to Manchester United but insisted no concrete offer has been made for him.

Dragovic was heavily linked with a move to Man United in the January transfer window but a transfer never materialised.

Reports earlier this week suggested Louis van Gaal is still keeping tabs on the 24-year-old ahead of a possible deal in the summer and now Dragovic admitted has revealed he would consider moving to United if an offer was to come in for him.

Speaking about the speculation, Dragovic said: ”I would be lying if I said that something is not buzzing around in the back of my head… but as long as no concrete offer is on the table, I do not need to deal with it in more detail.”

When asked if he keeps up with the defensive situation at United, he said: ”Not yet, but I might in the future (laughs). No, seriously, I know what people are playing at the top clubs in defence, and what the competition situation would look like.”

It appears that United pulled out of a move for Dragovic late on in January as the deal was previously said to be all but confirmed.

Instead, van Gaal placed faith in Chris Smalling and Phil Jones at the back. The pair have really kicked on in recent weeks, playing a vital role in the wins over Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool. However, the club do need some depth in the position and Dragovic would go a long way to providing that.
