Manchester United make surprise move for Premier League goalkeeper
Manchester United have made a surprise move to sign Martin Dubravka from Newcastle United. The Red Devils want the Slovakian on loan to provide competition for David De Gea.
Manchester United‘s search for a new goalkeeper has taken them to Tyneside, and they are keen on getting Dubravka, as per The Athletic.
David Ornstein reports the Red Devils are yet to agree a deal for the Slovakian, who was signed in 2018 from Sparta Prague after a successful loan spell.
The 33-year-old was not a part of Newcastle United’s Carabao Cup win over Tranmere Rovers earlier this week. The Magpies have signed Nick Pope from Burnley this summer, and he has taken over as the #1 at the club.
Kevin Trapp was linked with the Red Devils earlier this month, but the interest has cooled. Eintracht Frankfurt are reportedly demanding €25 million for their goalkeeper.
Dean Henderson was unwilling to wait for Erik ten Hag’s arrival and forced a loan move to Nottingham Forest as he wanted to play regularly this season.
The Englishman is aiming for a spot in the World Cup squad and try and nick the #1 jersey as well, with Jordan Pickford struggling at Everton.
