Manchester United brought their season back on track with a 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford. Goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford were enough to seal all three points and provide hope to the supporters that this campaign is going to be a success, despite the disastrous start.
The introduction of Casemiro into the team is only expected to improve it. The 30-year-old defensive midfielder has been brought in from Real Madrid for a transfer fee around £70 million, after he won five Champions League titles during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
But Manchester United cannot afford to stop there. There are a number of other areas in this squad which are in need of improving. One of them could very well be goalkeeper, as questions have been asked about David de Gea and his suitability to Erik ten Hag’s style of football. And it looks like the Red Devils have their eyes on Newcastle United’s Martin Dubravka.
As Dharmesh Sheth tweeted out, Manchester United have held talks with Newcastle United over the signing of Dubravka:
Manchester United have held talks over Newcastle United goalkeeper
Dubravka was the first-choice goalkeeper for Newcastle United last season and did a great job as well, as they went from relegation battlers to finishing a respectable 11th in the Premier League, and were one of the most in-form teams in all of Europe in the second half of the season.
Dubravka has lost his place in the starting XI this season though, following the arrival of Nick Pope at Newcastle United from Burnley.
As a result, a move away from St James’ Park might be on the cards for Dubravka and he is believed to be open to joining Manchester United. And while he would not be a glamourous signing, the goalkeeper showed enough last season to suggest that he could compete with De Gea.
