Manchester United are planning a goalkeeper operation.
Reporter Fabricio Romano, who is well versed in the transfer market, revealed on the 5th (Korean time) Manchester United’s goalkeeper operation plan this winter. Once there comes Jack Butland. Reporter Romano said: “Bertland is coming as a backup goalkeeper. He replaces Martin Dubravka, who has returned to Newcastle United. Butland is on loan and is expected to be under contract until this season.”
David de Gea’s original backup was Dean Henderson. Henderson is a goalkeeper raised by Manchester United Youth and has enough talent to become Manchester United’s No. 1 in the future. He proved his competitive edge during his loan spell at Sheffield United with a crazy run. He looked like he would soon replace De Gea, even as he re-signed with Manchester United. It was more likely because De Gea was at the point where his skills were declining.
But he couldn’t push De Gea away. De Gea came back to life and put on a great show. Eventually, Henderson left in search of an opportunity and went on loan to Nottingham ahead of the season. When Henderson fell out and only Tom Heaton remained, he supplied Dubravka, which had been in an ambiguous position after signing Nick Pope from Newcastle. Dubravka kept only the bench except for two games in the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup).
Dubravka asked to return to Newcastle on loan with fewer opportunities than expected. In addition, it was said that Manchester United, whose backup goalkeeper was vacated, was pursuing the return of Henderson. But reporter Romano nailed it, saying, “Henderson is not coming back from Nottingham.” Instead, it is Manchester United who want to fill the void through a short-term loan to Berland. 안전놀이터
Butland is a resource that was once predicted to succeed Joe Hart as England’s national team goalkeeper. He made his name widely with his good form at Stoke City, and after that he went downhill to become a mediocre goalkeeper. He was also a backup, not a main player at Palace.
Reporter Romano told the story of the De Gea contract with the news of the surety of the Berland rental. “Man United want to sign a new long-term contract with De Gea. We recently triggered an option to extend it for another year and we intend to stay with De Gea beyond that,” he claimed.
