During the last couple of months, a player; who hasn’t been in his best form, and Manchester United is considering replacing him. The player at issue is none other than the Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea. With his recent performance against Sevilla in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, there has been a disagreement about whether or not De Gea will continue at United. Erik Ten Hag wants him to renovate his contract with the Red Devils, but the delay on the part of the Spanish player has obliged the search for a new goalkeeper if David decides not to renovate.
Many options went through the table, but the most interesting of all, and the one that attracts Manchester United is the option of Dominik Livakovic, the Croatian goalkeeper, who is currently in Croatia playing for Dinamo Zagreb. But his name went into the world of football, after the World Cup when he was an important piece of the Croatian puzzle to gain third place in Qatar. And also, he has a release clause of 10 million which is not a big spend for Manchester United.
What are his stats this season?
In the 22/23 season, he disputed a total of 4.020 minutes, divided into 44 games between the Croatian League and the Champions League. He has a total of 10 clean sheets, throughout the season, the downside, is that he has combined 47 goals. He is the starting goalkeeper in the Croatian national team, having a total of 43 games since his national debut in 2017.
Does he have the profile to be a United player?
The 28-year-old Croatian was considered one of the best goalkeepers in Qatar 2022, just behind Bouno and Dibu Martinez, but the reason why United wants to have this player is because of the trust it gives you under the three post, with his 1.88-centimeter height that helps him when he jumps to a side of the goal, to save or throw away the ball to stop it from being a goal. Also in a decisive stay, he is very confident in penalties, here are some flashbacks from Qatar, where he helped Croatia throughout the World Cup with his stretched imposing and saving the most important penalties.
Will you wait for De Gea´s Renovation or do you sign Livakovic?
