According to reports, Manchester United is in talks with Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer.
The 33-year-contract old’s with the Bundesliga club expires at the end of the season, making him a free agent.
Away from his club Borussia Monchengladbach, the Swiss goalkeeper has been representing his country on their way to the World Cup knockout stages.
United manager Erik ten Hag is considering a goalkeeping refresh at the club, with questions about David de Gea’s long-term future at Old Trafford despite playing over 500 games for the Red Devils.
But according to ESPN, United is currently planning a move to replace De Gea as the starting goalkeeper next summer with Sommer.
According to a recent report by ESPN, Manchester United is negotiating a free-agent agreement to sign Sommer, and can begin drafting an approach as early as the first of next month.
In the meantime, Dubravka is anticipated to return to Newcastle at the end of the campaign.
During Switzerland’s Tuesday match against Portugal in the round of 16, Sommer made three appearances at the World Cup in Qatar.
Since 2014, the 33-year-old Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper has been the German team’s first choice, but it is believed that the team is already making preparations for his departure.
ESPN notes that United hasn’t started contract negotiations with De Gea yet.
De Gea is Man United’s first-choice goalkeeper, but due to his recent play, he was left off of Spain’s World Cup roster.
The Spaniard’s current contract with United will expire in June of next year, though the club has the option to extend it for an additional year. He was not selected for Luis Enrique’s World Cup squad in Qatar.
Since moving to Germany from Basel in 2014, the seasoned goalkeeper has played over 270 times for his German club in addition to 80 times for his country’s team.
