Manchester United loaned Dean Henderson out to Nottingham Forest and are now looking to sign a new goalkeeper.
The Red Devils do need a second-choice shot-stopper to push David De Gea and reports coming from Germany suggest that we are serious about signing Kevin Trapp.
According to Sport1, Man Utd are ready to agree a deal of around 11 million euros a year i.e. £178,000 a week, to sign the goalie from Frankfurt.
The renowned news source have mentioned that the Old Trafford club are yet to make any official offer to the Bundesliga side, who are hoping to hold on to the 32-year-old.
Trapp is a decorated star, who won every major domestic prize with PSG on multiple occasions. Moreover, last season, he captained the Frankfurt side to the Europa League triumph.
For Germany, so far, the veteran goalkeeper has only made 6 appearances and has mainly warmed the bench behind Neuer and Ter Stegen.
De Gea has been inconsistent for Man Utd for more than a year and rarely does he produce fantastic performances.
This term, in the opening two Premier League games, the Spanish international was absolutely poor but he made impressive saves against Liverpool last night.
With Henderson gone, Ten Hag needs a goalie who can challenge the former Atletico Madrid star for the spot in the starting XI.
In all fairness, Trapp would not want to leave the captain’s armband and a regular starting place at Frankfurt to sit on the Old Trafford bench.
Do you think the Kaiser would accept a lucrative deal worth £178,000 a week to join Man United?
