Manchester United are following Borussia Monchengladbach defender Dante.

Russian sources say United and Anzhi have been in contact with Gladbach to register their interest in the 28 year-old Brazilian centre-half.

Dante is tied to Gladbach until 2014 and carries a price-tag of £6 million.

Along with United and Anzhi, Bayern Munich are also interested in the tough-tackling central defender.
