Manchester United seem to be looking to add to their ranks between the posts. The early performances from David de Gea this season have raised some questions about his suitability to the style of football that Erik ten Hag wants his side to play. While the Spaniard remains a very good shot-stopper, several examples of which we saw last season, there are other aspects of his game which do not fit this system.
Thus, Manchester United might end up signing another goalkeeper this summer, after letting Dean Henderson leave on loan to Nottingham Forest.
They were linked with a move for Kevin Trapp, which might have been excellent, but that seems to be off the table now. But instead, it looks like the club could potentially end up signing Martin Dubravka from Newcastle United and have been handed a boost in that regard as well.
As tweeted out by Fabrizio Romano, Dubravka is prepared to agree personal terms with Manchester United and is very keen on the move. Loan with a £5 million buy option clause is now discussed.
Manchester United handed boost in their chase to sign a new goalkeeper
Dubravka was excellent between the posts for Newcastle United last season, especially following the arrival of Eddie Howe as manager, as the Magpies climbed from the relegation zone to finish 11th.
Now though, he finds himself sitting on the bench, as the Magpies signed Nick Pope from Burnley in the summer.
Thus, it is not hard to see why Dubravka might be keen on making the move to Old Trafford. Worst case scenario would be that he continues to sit on the bench. On the other hand, he could potentially have the chance to dislodge De Gea, if the Spaniard struggles this season, and end up becoming the number one for Manchester United.
