Man Utd join transfer scramble for Shakhtar attacker Mykhaylo Mudryk

Manchester United have joined the battle for Shakhtar Donetsk attacker Mykhaylo Mudryk.

The Sun says United have been tracking Mudryk for a while now, with scouts keeping watch.

Their Premier League rivals Arsenal are also believed to be interested as they look to add to their young squad.

But Erik ten Hag has been keen on the winger since his days as Ajax boss.

However, Shakhtar are reluctant to sell one of their prized assets on the cheap, and would demand a substantial fee.

It is unlikely United will go for him in January, after having huge investment in the squad over the past summer.

The Red Devils have also looked at AC Milan star Rafael Leao as another potential target.
