The agent of Alexander Buttner has slammed Manchester United for blowing their deal for Real Madrid fullback Fabio Coentrao.

Buttner's agent Alexander Bursac is furious that his client's wishes to go out on loan have seemingly been scuppered.

Bursac told Voetbal International: "It's unbelievable that Coentrao was not signed on time and, whether that is an error on the part of Real or United doesn't matter.

"We have received assurances of a loan. Alex is not necessarily looking for a guarantee of playing time, but he does not want to spend the entire season on the bench."
