Alexander Buttner closing in on Dynamo Moscow transfer

Buttner set for United exit

Manchester United's out-of-favour defender Alexander Buttner is reportedly inching closer to a summer move to Dynamo Moscow, according to a report.

The 25-year-old joined the Red Devils under former boss Alex Ferguson in the summer of 2012, and has since then found himself playing second fiddle to French international Patrice Evra.

According to De Telegraaf, the Dutch left-back will join Dynamo on a three-year contract, with the Red Devils in the transfer market for either Luke Shaw or Daley Blind, both of whom can play in Buttner's position.

Buttner made 15 appearances for the Mancunian giants in all competitions last season.
