Kicking De Gea into the street, Man Utd agrees to break Kepa’s record to sign Kahn’s ‘heir’

Man United is intensifying their pursuit of a player who is regarded as “among the greatest” in his league, a left-field signing. An outspoken star’s career would most likely terminate as a result of such an action.

The goalkeeper position has been under under attention at Old Trafford, and this trend is anticipated to continue in the months to come.

David de Gea is reportedly close to agreeing to a new deal that will solidify his position as Manchester United’s undisputed No. 1 goalkeeper, according to a recent story from The Athletic.

Tom Heaton and Jack Butland fill the other slots for the Spanish ace in the interim.

Heaton’s current deal is slated to terminate at the end of the current campaign, although United still has the option to extend Heaton’s employment by one more year.

In contrast, Butland was purchased by Newcastle in January when the team made the decision to bring Martin Dubravka back six months early. By the end of the current campaign, Butland is unlikely to make a permanent move to United, and it’s probable that he’ll leave Palace as well.

His present contract at Selhurst Park expires in June, and the club has no intention of renewing it, claims Football Insider. He might go north of the border if he joins Scottish powerhouse Rangers.

As a result, it’s possible that Ten Hag will start the 2019 season with just De Gea and Heaton, as well as Dean Henderson, who is on loan from Nottingham Forest.

If the 25-year-old player’s vehement comments during the preseason are any indicator, he does not seem to see his long-term future at Old Trafford.

The stopper spoke to talkSPORT on the reasons why he was “fuming” at Manchester United after calling the way he was treated “criminal.”

The Telegraph’s James Ducker is sure that Manchester United must “sell well” in order to give Ten Hag the war chest he needs this summer. Henderson is one of the first-team stars who is probably expendable, and Forest seems to be a perfect substitute.

Ten Hag will now have a vacancy in his goalkeeping ranks as a result of this. A team of United’s stature just cannot risk starting a new season with only two senior goalkeepers on their roster at all times.

Now, according to American journalist Tom Bogert, United may have discovered the solution to their issue in Major League Soccer (MLS).

Djordje Petrovic, the goaltender for the New England Revolution and the Serbian national team, is reportedly being “heavily scouted” by Manchester United, according to a tweet from the B/R Football reporter.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper, who joined the Revolution in April 2022, has quickly made himself known as “among the top GKs in MLS,” according to Bogert. In reality, he was a candidate for the a war d given to the league’s top goalie for the previous season and made it to the final round of voting.

Bogert insisted that as of right now, no formal channels of contact between United and New England have been established. Yet, Manchester United is closely monitoring the teenager, and given the league he would be joining, it is unlikely that he would command a high price.

In addition to Bogert’s piece, the Manchester Evening News claims that if Manchester United follows through on their interest, a “summer move” is a genuine possibility.

When United decides on Henderson’s future with the team, that timing would fall into place.

Any prospective permanent move will necessitate fresh discussions since his loan agreement with Forest does not include a buyout clause.

Petrovic might be the player United choose to fill the gap as one of De Gea’s two backups if Steve Cooper’s team decides to explore another trade.
