Manchester United target £12m Yevhen Konoplyanka

Louis van Gaal is seriously considering meeting Yevhen Konoplyanka’s transfer release clause of £12.1m, according to The Guardian. Konoplyanka, 24, was subject to a deadline day bid from Liverpool in January, but that deal didn’t have time to go through.

Now it is believed that Manchester United have scouted the Ukrainian on several occasions, and are ready to challenge Liverpool for his signature. The player himself is said to favour a move to Old Trafford despite the lack of Champions League football.

Andrey Stetsenko, Dnipro’s sporting director who is in charge of transfers, has suggest that Konoplyanka will certainly leave the club at some point.

“Our scouts are working to find his replacement. Sooner or later Konoplyanka will leave Dnipro,” he said. “We know that English, Spanish and German clubs are monitoring the situation and are interested in the player. But we have no offers. His contract has a buy out clause worth €15m for foreign clubs. For Ukrainian clubs the buy out is more.”

On the few occasions that i’ve seen him play, he is a very talented player who also offers versatility. Konoplyanka can be used on the left or right-hand side, and also through the middle.

I watched him take on Tottenham earlier on in the season in Europe, and he had an excellent game in the first-leg, capping off his superb performance with a goal.
