Manchester United are close to finalising a move for the Dynamo Kiev centre-back Aleksandar Dragovic.
The report claims that Louis Van Gaal is looking to make a defensive signing after his side’s 3-3 draw against Newcastle and Dragovic has been identified as the ideal candidate.
Furthermore, they have also claimed that an agreement is hours away.
Manchester United have had to field a makeshift back four at times this season due to injuries and signing a defender makes perfect sense.
The 24-year-old Austrian has attracted a lot of interest from several Premier League clubs with his performances for Dynamo and it appears that he will finally take the next step with a big move to Manchester United.
The likes of Rojo and Jones have struggled with injuries and Van Gaal needs a reliable partner for Chris Smalling. The Austrian could form a formidable defensive partnership with Smalling for years to come.
