Martin Dubravka set for Manchester United medical today
Martin Dubravka is on his way to Old Trafford.
Widespread reports over the past two weeks hinted that the Newcastle United goalkeeper was an option for Erik ten Hag, who wanted a new back-up goalkeeper to David de Gea.
Tom Heaton doesn’t cut the mustard as second choice and Dubravka might challenge De Gea since he’s renowned for being comfortable with the ball at his feet. And, in the modern game, he’s very much the 11th outfield player.
Dubravka is set to leave the Magpies after four and a half years to join Manchester United on an initial loan. The Mail claim that he will travel to Manchester today to undergo his medical and complete the deal.
The move is likely to become permanent, so long as Dubravka makes a certain number of first team appearances, with the buying buying option worth approximately £5m.
Interestingly, Dubravka made his Newcastle debut against United and showcased a man of the match performance. Now he’s about the join a club he would’ve always dreamed about.
Let us know in the comments section if you think Dubravka will take De Gea’s place in the team.
