Alexander Buttner has confirmed that he is leaving Manchester United for Russian outfit Dynamo Moscow.

Buttner has struggled to get a foothold at Old Trafford since his arrival in 2012. He has managed only 28 appearances in his two seasons at the club and suffered a blow after the man who signed him, Sir Alex Ferguson, retired in 2013.

With Patrice Evra’s contract renewal and talk of signing a new left-back at Old Trafford, the 25-year-old's future at the club has been uncertain.

However, the Dutch full-back has confirmed that he is leaving the Red Devils for Dynamo Moscow and is set to put pen to paper on a three-year deal.

The former Vitesse man feels that Dynamo Moscow will provide him with the opportunity of playing in the Champions League again.  


“I am convinced that they can mount a title challenge and thus qualify for the Champions League”, Butter told Dutch daily De Telegraaf.

Buttner arrived at Manchester United from Dutch outfit Vitesse in 2012 for a transfer fee of £4.4m. He still has three years left on his contract.
