Alexander Buttner in Moscow ahead of transfer

Published 10 Comments

Manchester United look set to sell Alexander Buttner to Dinamo Moscow after the player's brother posted pictures of the pair in the Russian capital together on Instagram.

After admitting that his Manchester United future was likely over following the appointment of Louis Van Gaal, Buttner has seemingly dropped another massive hint that Dinamo Moscow will be his next club.

Buttner's agent said last week that the Russian giants were interested in his player, and today the Manchester Evening News carries pictures from Denny Buttner's Instagram account that shows the United player in a Moscow hotel room.

It's likely he is in the city to sign for the club, thereby ending his brief and largely unsuccessful stay at Old Trafford.

Buttner's problem with Van Gaal stems from his refusal to call the left-back up to the Dutch national team squad. Buttner felt he had done enough to earn an international call-up but none was forthcoming.

So when it was announced that Van Gaal would replace David Moyes as permanent United boss, Buttner clearly saw the writing on the wall.

United extended Patrice Evra's contract for another season, and the Old Trafford club are currently engaged in negotiations with Southampton over a move for teenage left-back Luke Shaw.
