According to ESPN, Manchester United will reportedly aim to sign Yann Sommer, a goalkeeper from Switzerland, next summer on a free transfer.
When Sommer’s deal with Borussia Monchengladbach expires at the end of the current campaign, he will leave the German team.
Negotiations to get the 33-year-old into Erik ten Hag’s team can start on January 1.
Ten Hag wants to upgrade his goalkeeping staff in preparation for the upcoming season.
After only making one first-team appearance at Old Trafford, Martin Dubravka, who was signed on loan during the most recent summer transfer window, is poised to return to Newcastle United.
The club’s pursuit of Sommer, a member of the Swiss team that advanced to the round of 16 at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, may cast doubt on David De Gea’s long-term prospects.
Although De Gea has been Ten Hag’s top pick, the Red Devils have not yet begun contract negotiations.
The club has the option to extend the Spanish player’s contract until the end of the current campaign to 2024.
Due to De Gea’s shortcomings as a goalkeeper who can play the ball, Luis Enrique decided not to include him in Spain’s World Cup roster.
