Man Utd: Dharmesh Sheth issues Old Trafford transfer update

Manchester United ‘100 per cent’ want to sign goalkeeper before transfer window closes, says Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

Erik ten Hag currently has two senior marksmen at his disposal, but Sheth believes the Dutchman wants three in his squad to fight for a first-team place.

What is the current Manchester United goalkeeper situation?

Although the United manager secured his first win in the Old Trafford dugout against Liverpool on Monday, Ten Hag is expected to be a busy man ahead of next Thursday’s transfer deadline.

The Red Devils need depth and quality in several key areas of the pitch, including a number two goalkeeper.

United currently have David de Gea as first choice, with veteran Tom Heaton currently covering for the Spaniard, who has endured a shaky start to the season.

Regardless, Sheth believes they want to replace Dean Henderson, who has gone out on loan to improve his playing time after falling behind De Gea in the pecking order last term.

What did Sheth say about Manchester United?

Despite already having two senior players between the posts in De Gea and Heaton, Sheth believes Ten Hag want all bases covered with a third.

He told GIVEMESPORT: “A goalkeeper, who wants to strengthen to 100% before the transfer window closes. Henderson has gone on loan to Nottingham Forest and they want a group of three goalkeepers, with all three capable of breaking into the first team.

“Initially to come in as a number two to challenge De Gea, but who knows, to provide enough competition to think ‘well, De Gea, your position could be under threat because we’ve got another quality goalkeeper coming in.’

Which goalkeepers have Manchester United been linked with?

According to the Independent, United could look to the Bundesliga to fill the void left in their squad.

The report says the Old Trafford club are “considering moves” for Kevin Trapp and Yann Sommer, who currently play for Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Trapp is believed to be “particularly interested” in making the switch to English football, although United would have to fork out more than €10m, and Frankfurt are unwilling to sell for less.

But bringing Sommer to the Theater of Dreams may not be so easy, with the experienced goalkeeper currently number one at Monchengladbach and looking to remain first choice with the World Cup around the corner.
