Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham


Ukrainian winger Yevhen Konoplyanka’s future remains uncertain with both Manchester United and Liverpool being linked with his signature.

Liverpool managing director spent days in the Ukraine in January trying to sign the Dnipro wide man only to see negotiations brake down on the final day of the transfer window.

Since then Tottenham has been mentioned as a possible destination and now Manchester United whose new manager Louis van Gaal likes to play a team with two wingers a striker and a playmaker in the centre of the pitch.

Dnipro is saying that so far no offers have come in but they are aware of the interest from English clubs and are resigned to the fact that they might lose Konoplyanka during the summer.

When talking to Sky Sports Dnipro’s sporting director Andrey Stetsenko said: “Our scouts are working to find his replacement. Sooner or later Konoplyanka will leave Dnipro.”

“We know that English, Spanish and German clubs are monitoring the situation and are interested in the player.

But we have had no offers.

“His contract has a buyout clause worth €15m for foreign clubs. For Ukrainian clubs the buyout is more.

“Konoplyanka spoke to me and said that if he did not have offers from foreign clubs in the future it would not be a problem. He would stay with us with pleasure and continue to play for Dnipro.”

While Liverpool are considered the front runners still it might not be the case after Stetsenko added: “After negotiations in the winter Liverpool did not contact us further about Konoplyanka.”
