Manchester United set to sell Alex Buttner to Dynamo Moscow

Alex Buttner set for Manchester United exit

Manchester United are ready to let full-back Alex Buttner leave Old Trafford for Dynamo Moscow, reports The Express.

The Dutch defender, who is 25-years-old, has struggled with life at Old Trafford and hasn't been able to hold down a place in the Red Devils first team. 

And now it appears that new Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is prepared to let him go in the up coming market. 

Experienced French full-back Patrice Evra recently signed a new one year deal at the Theatre of Dreams, and teenager Luke Shaw looks set to sign for the club for £27 million, meaning Buttner could drift further down the pecking order under the new regime.

What's next for Buttner?

Buttner's agent has admitted the player is ready to join Dynamo Moscow and is excited by the challenges ahead. 

Speaking to reporters, he said: "The owner wants to take the club to the next level.

"I am convinced that the club can mount a title challenge and qualify for the Champions League."

Reports from Dutch paper Telegraaf have suggested that the left-back will sign a three year deal with Moscow as he departs Old Trafford. 

The player will be desperate to to prove himself at his next club, as he goes in search of first team football.

Future of Manchester United 

As previously mentioned, it appears that Patrice Evra and Luke Shaw will go head-to-head for a first team spot at Manchester United next term. 

It will be an interesting battle between two players in extremely different situations. Evra, who has starred at the top level for a number of years, has been a consistent member of the Red Devils squad. 

Shaw, meanwhile, looks set for a bright future in the game and could become a long term hit at Old Trafford. Manchester United fans will be hoping that Evra acts as a mentor for the youngster throughout the 2014/15 campaign. 

Red Devils fans will certainly be excited ahead of the new campaign, as the club look to mount a Premier League title challenge and make a quick return to Europe's elite competition. Van Gaal's side begin their campaign against Swansea City at Old Trafford.
