As it was reported last week, Manchester United and Erik ten Hag are looking for a new goalkeeper that could be a backup option for David De Gea after Dean Henderson was loaned out to Nottingham Forest and said some negative things about the Red Devils during an interview with talkSPORT. Deano might never come back after that and the club is searching for a substitute.

However, after De Gea’s shocking performance last Saturday against Brentford when he made two mistakes that ended up in two goals for the Bees in that 4-0 defeat away from home, the club is now hurrying up even more to find someone who can actually be competition for the Spanish keeper in the short-term.

The first name that was thrown around was Southampton’s Alex McCarthy, but there were never reports that Manchester United actually made a bid for the 32-year-old man. Yesterday it was reported by Fabrizio Romano that Yann Sommer was a serious option for the 20-times champions of England as his contract runs out soon.

Today Mike McGrath from The Daily Telegraph informed that MUFC has targeted Everton’s Asmir Begovic as a potential second-choice goalkeeper. Despite this, the reporter added that this operation wouldn’t be easy as his manager Frank Lampard is determined to keep him because he is their current backup option for Jordan Pickford.

A current theme for Begovic

The Bosnian goalkeeper made a name for himself in the Premier League during his five years at Stoke City where he showed his great abilities under the sticks. However, his career changed after signing with Chelsea in 2015 where he was the backup option for Thibaut Courtois, then he was behind Gianluigi Donnarumma during his loan at AC Milan in 2020.
