Manchester United are said to have a list of three goalkeepers that they may sign in order to secure a new No. 2 for Erik ten Hag.

Manchester United are switching up their entire goalkeeping department this summer, with David de Gea out the door and Dean Henderson expected to follow suit.

United are bringing in Inter Milan’s André Onana as their next No. 1 as Erik ten Hag looks to rebrand his squad’s style of play – but with Henderson also exiting, the club need a second option behind Onana.

According to Fabrizio Romano, United are “working on” a deal to sign Japanese goalkeeper Zion Suzuki, although they are yet to make contact with his current club, Urawa Reds.

Although Suzuki is a target, it is said that talks have not yet commenced as United are concentrating on getting Onana through the Carrington doors and into the squad before they jet off to the USA.

It is said that the ‘keeper and United have reached an agreement on personal terms, and United plan to submit a bid in a few days.

Further to this, the famed Italian Journalist explains that the Japanese U21 keeper is only one of three options on United’s list, with previous reports also suggesting that the club are monitoring the progress of Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez – although the chances of Spanish keeper joining as a backup option is minimal.

Manchester United are also exploring a deal to sign Atalanta striker Rasmus Højlund, although there is a significant difference in the valuation that each club have presented for the Danish frontman.

United are open to selling both Fred and Donny van de Beek in order to raise funds for transfers for the rest of the summer.
