Tottenham want United defender Buttner but face competition from Galatasaray

Tottenham face competition in the race to sign Man United defender Alexander Buttner with Turkish giants Galatasaray entering the fray, according to The Mirror.

Alexander Buttner

New Spurs manager Tim Sherwood wants to bring in a left-back to keep Danny Rose on his toes, and Buttner has been said to be ready to swap Old Trafford for White Hart Lane after appearing only five times since joining the Red Devils – but the emerging interest from Galatasaray, and former Man City manager Roberto Mancini, throws something of a spanner in the works.

Indeed, United will surely hope for a bidding war to push the 24-year-old’s price up, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will not be happy if the north Londoners are asked to pay more than their valuation of the player after shelling out in excess of £100m during the summer transfer window, and could make way for Buttner to move to Turkey.

Sherwood, meanwhile, has reportedly told Levy and technical director Franco Baldini that he wants the final sale over purchases and sales. As The Sun reports, Sherwood said of the situation: “Would I be the one to pick players? Yes. I think it would have to be that way.”
