Manchester United: De Gea’s understudy identified?


Manchester United is looking for a new goalkeeper during this summer transfer window. The English club are targeting a replacement for departing Dean Henderson.

Henderson with a promoted?

The succession of Dean Henderson is launched. Barred by David De Gea, the Spanish goalkeeper is heading for a departure from Manchester United during this summer transfer window. Under contract until June 2025 but aware that his playing time will remain very limited under the orders of new coach Erik ten Hag, who took over from Ralf Rangnick, the last English rampart is coveted by Nottingham Forest. The club promoted to the Premier League for the 2022-2023 season is seeking a loan from the former member of Sheffield United.

Under contract until 2024

If his take-off with the Reds is confirmed in the coming days or weeks to come, the Red Devils will have to find a new understudy for the former Atletico Madrid player. In this context, The Guardian understand that the Old Trafford-based club are eyeing a Championship goalkeeper. Relegated to the second division with Watford, Daniel Bachmann is one of the options considered by Manchester United. The Mancunian staff is discussing with the Hornets, open to a departure from their doorman on the condition of finding an agreement for a definitive transfer.

12 Premier League games last season

Present at Vicarage Road since the summer of 2017, the 27-year-old Austrian goalkeeper is linked until June 2024 with Watford, now coached by Rob Edwards following the announcement of the retirement of Roy Hodgson. The website Transfermarkt estimates the market value of the former Stoke City resident at 2.50 million euros. Manchester United would therefore not have to break the bank to secure his services. Last season, Daniel Bachmann will have played 12 Premier League games and finished the year in a number 2 role, behind Ben Foster.
