Man United enter the battle to sign Shakhtar Donetsk midfield star

Man United have been keeping a tab on the development of Shakhtar Donetsk attacker Mykhyalo Mudryk. Erik ten Hag wants to bring Ukraine international, a target for Arsenal, to Theatre of Dreams. Teams are expected to line up for Mudryk as soon as the transfer window reopens in winter.

But the Miners won’t be feeling the heat as they have a pretty comfortable situation regarding his long-term deal. Having established his authority in the youth setup, Mykhaylo broke through the senior ranks last year and has defied all the expectations with his brilliance.


The 21-year-old winger has emerged as Shakhtar’s potent weapon, and the Miners have been banking on the forward both domestically and continental. However, the Miners have maintained their stance that any interested suitor will have to shell out a handsome amount to the tune of €100m if they really want to acquire the service of the footballer.

Arsenal and Man United are among the prospective suitors for the Ukrainian. As for Man United, while Mykhaylo might not be a potential like-for-like replacement for Ronaldo, he can fill in on the flanks while Rashford and Martial compete for the striker role in the final third.

Both Man United and Arsenal could tease Shakhtar with an enticing bid. But the transfer battle for the Ukrainian could be stretched to the summer, with other big footballers like Newcastle United also showing interest.
