Aleksandar Dragovic's representatives believe a summer move to Manchester United is possible, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The same report has suggested that the Red Devils have been watching the Austrian defender in recent time, with recent reports linking the club with a move for the Dynamo Kyiv man in this transfer window.
However, it now appears that, despite their interest, the club will wait before making a move for his signature. Seemingly the Old Trafford hierarchy will continue to monitor the 23-year-old over the coming weeks and months, before pressing ahead with an offer.
There's no doubt about it, Dragovic, at 23-years-old, looks set for a bright future in the game having already been capped 35 times by Austria. In fact, after proving his credentials in recent time, he's even been linked with a move to Arsenal, but it now seems likely that the Gunners will add Villarreal's Gabriel Paulista to their squad.
It remains to be seen as to whether Manchester United will step up their interest in the defensive ace anytime soon, but it now appears that the club will stick with their current options for the remainder of the campaign.

In truth, though, the club's back-line has struggled throughout the course of the season so far, with the likes of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans all failing to prove their credentials under the new regime at Old Trafford.
The trio have all failed to maintain their fitness, too, having spent spells out on the sidelines, whist summer signing Marcos Rojo has also endured a stop-start debut season with the club.
The quartet, though, may well have the second half of the season to prove their qualities and will be desperate to play a key role in helping the club secure a place in next year's Champions League.
The Manchester United boss will also be hoping to pick up his first piece of silverware for the club, with his side in the hat for tonight's FA Cup fifth round draw.
