Paper Talk: Three keeper Man Utd shortlist revealed as Solskjaer plans huge deal
Manchester United have three big-name goalkeeper targets to replace David De Gea, Liverpool are among the suitors for an unhappy Chelsea winger, while Wednesday’s transfer gossip claims Wolves want a Schalke midfielder.
JAN OBLAK ON MAN UTD KEEPER LIST
Manchester United will target moves for three new goalkeepers this summer with David De Gea up for sale, claims a report.
De Gea was recently allowed to return to Spain for paternity leave – and multiple reports state his time at United will end this summer.
A move to PSG looks to be on the cards after Mauricio Pochettino learned of United’s asking price.
Dean Henderson has been trusted with the gloves in his absence – and the England man has responded with two clean sheets.
However, it’s claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won’t rely on him as United’s long-term No 1.
As such, the Daily Express claims United have three targets in mind as a new No 1. They state Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak is their top target, despite a €100m exit clause in his contract. The Slovenian is regarded by many as the world’s best keeper. However, convincing him to move could be tough.
Solskjaer expects Man Utd return for De Gea soon
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects goalkeeper David De Gea to return 'very soon' after celebrating the birth of his first child in Spain.
As such, the Express claims United are also considering Gianluigi Donnarumma. His situation was documented in Euro Paper Talk on Tuesday. As a free agent, he will have an ‘audition’ against United in Thursday’s Europa League clash.
The third keeper on United’s wanted list is the lesser-known Mike Maignan. The Lille keeper is pushing Hugo Lloris hard to be France’s No 1.
Maignan is rated at £40m though his deal at Lille expires in summer 2022.
