Manchester United are set to rekindle their interest in signing Dynamo Kiev defender Aleksandar Dragovic this summer, according to the Mirror.
Louis van Gaal is looking to sign a centre-back and is keen on securing the services of Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels. The German international is on top of the Dutchman's wishlist.
However, the former Netherlands manager is keeping his options open and has had his scouts watch Dragovic on numerous occasions this season. Van Gaal is looking to bolster United's central defending position and failing to land Hummels will then see United turn their attention to the Dynamo player.
The 24-year-old was linked with a move to Old Trafford in January. The centre-back had earlier publicly expressed his desire to play in the Premier League and follow former United captain Nemanja Vidic's footsteps.
The deal did not take shape in the mid-season transfer window and Dragovic continued with his current employers. The Austrian international has already impressed with his performance for Dynamo Kiev and has attracted interest from clubs from England and Europe.
The Mirror reports that Dragovic is valued to be around £12m ($17.8m) and is set to leave the Ukrainian outfit later this summer. Apart from United, Arsenal and AS Roma have also maintained their interest in the Dynamo star and could make an approach for his services.
Dynamo manager Sergei Rebrov has already expressed his desire to keep Dragovic in Kiev beyond this summer transfer window.
"You are asking about one of the best players in my team and I don't want to lose this player. He is a top-class player and I hope he will stay with us," Rebrov explained.
Meanwhile, United midfielder Daley Blind believes Spain will be looking for revenge when they take on his country Netherlands in the upcoming friendly fixture scheduled to be played in Amsterdam.
Netherlands defeated Spain 5-1 in the 2014 World Cup and it will be for the first time the two nations will face each other.
"It's always nice to play against big teams like Spain. We know it will be difficult and a totally different game to the one at the World Cup," Blind told United's official website.
"I think so [Spain will have extra determination], I would have some revenge feelings if I lost against a team too! That wouldn't only be after a game at the World Cup though. If you lose against any team you always want to win the next time you play them. So I think they will have those feelings," he added.
