Manchester United will bid for Japanese goalkeeper Zion Suzuki soon as both first and second choices leave Erik ten Hag’s squad.

Manchester United expect a seismic change in their goalkeeping department this summer, with David de Gea leaving the club for free after 12 seasons.

With the club set to sign André Onana for a fee likely to be around the £55 million mark, Dean Henderson, who before Erik ten Hag joined was the club’s No. 2 goalkeeper, is looking increasingly likely to leave on a permanent transfer this summer.

With United’s first-choice keeper already out of the picture and the second choice likely to leave, the club will likely need to sign two new shot-stoppers this summer – and with a deal almost complete for Onana, the club are turning their attention to Zion Suzuki.

Suzuki currently plies his trade for Japanese first-division side Urawa Reds and the Japanese U12 squad, and it is said that United intend to submit a formal offer for the player in the “near future”.

This is according to Marco Molla, who further claims that it has “become clear” that the 20-year-old is positive about the transfer going through.

Previous reports have stated that Suzuki ‘on United’s radar’, with the signing being a concrete possibility should Henderson leave the club as well as De Gea.

Although United are due to start their pre-season tour against Leeds United on Wednesday afternoon, Henderson is not expected to be part of the squad.
