    SunSport understands 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.

    His ability to play on the wing and in the number ten role are big pluses for the Ukraine international.
