Aside from signing Antony from Ajax, Manchester United have also been looking for new goalkeepers to sign this summer before the transfer window comes to an end. Erik ten Hag wants to add someone who can compete with David De Gea for a place down the sticks since the only other option at the moment is Tom Heaton.

After Eintracht Frankfurt’s €25 million demands for Kevin Trapp, the Red Devils decided to move on to their next name on their list, which was Martin Dúbravka. It only took a few days for the English giants to reach an agreement on personal terms with the Slovakian goalkeeper, who immediately saw it as a massive opportunity in his career.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have offered Newcastle a loan deal with a £5 million buy option at the end of the season. However, the Magpies haven’t accepted this yet, because they only want to let him go in a permanent transfer, not a loan. This shouldn’t be a problem for the Old Trafford side, so they should come to terms soon.

Today, Newcastle United didn’t include Martin Dúbravka on the list of players selected for their match today against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The experienced goalkeeper wasn’t even on the bench for the game, so that could give the idea that the club is already not counting on him for their plans in future fixtures this season.

A matter of time

The 33-year-old goalkeeper hasn’t played a single minute this campaign since Newcastle decided to buy Nick Pope in his position. Even though he was supposed to be the second-choice keeper, Karl Darlow played ahead of him in their mid-week fixture in the Carabao Cup. This might have been the straw that broke the camel's back.
