Buttner Off To Man Utd
Posted: Aug 20, 2012
Vitesse Arnhem's Alexander Buttner has revealed that he is set to seal a 'dream' move to Manchester United.
Southampton, Fulham and Queens Park Rangers have all made bids for the 23-year-old - but now it appears he is on his way to Old Trafford in a shock move.
Left-back Buttner, who was included in Holland's preliminary squad for Euro 2012, now appears to be closing on a move to England with the deal reportedly worth €5million (£3.9million).
Speaking to regional tv station Omroep Gelderland Buttner admitted he was about to seal his 'dream' move.
"This is really a dream come true," he said.
"It was all arranged very quickly and of course I am very delighted. Happily everything is coming to an end."
Buttner has been in dispute with Vitesse over his attempts to seal a move away from the club, and had even taken his case to the KNVB (Dutch FA) - but now he looks to have got his wish of a move away from the Gelredome.
Chelsea target Victor Moses and former Blue Franco Di Santo both drew decent saves from Petr Cech in the first half, while the introduction of the Latics' new striker, Arouna Kone, with 23 minutes left gave the hosts an added threat.
