Red Devils looking to sign Austrian international Aleksandar Dragovic.
Manchester United are set to intensify their search for a new central defensive option during the January transfer window, report the Express, with the Red Devils reportedly ready to offer Ukrainian side Dynamo Kiev £15 million for the signing of Austrian international Aleksandar Dragovic.
Dragovic is a relatively experienced player for the age of just 23, having accumulated more than 30 senior international caps for Austria so far and with appearances at both domestic and international level for both FC Basel and Dinamo Kiev.
United have been hamstrung with their options in defence so far this season, with the likes of Marcos Rojo, Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling all spending significant parts of the season sidelined through injury, leaving Louis van Gaal with an inconsistent and fractured back line.
It has always looked likely that at least one defensive buy would be forthcoming during the January window, with Dragovic now looking favourite to be that man if the Old Trafford club can secure a deal with their Ukrainian counterparts.
