According to reports emanating from Europe, top English Premier League side, Manchester United, have stepped up their hunt for a new world-class goalkeeper; with Real-Madrid bound David De Gea looking increasingly likely to depart.
Exclusive reports state that United are currently in talks with Tottenham FC over the transfer of Hugo Lloris; but more recently, it appears that van Gaal has grown impatient with negotiations over Lloris and has instead set his sights on another European Star, Galatasaray’s Fernando Muslera.
The 29 year-old goalkeeper, who is at his prime, is well-known in Turkey and in Europe for his agility, reflexes and skill in thwarting opposition counter-attacks; and will indeed be a good addition to a club of United’s stature. United Manager Louis van Gaal will be looking to replace the departing De Gea with Muslera, as part of his plans to bolster his squad ahead of the 2015/2016 EPL season.
With United already having reportedly submitted a €29 million bid, it is expected that Galatasaray would be induced to open talks with United soonest. Some reports claim the bid has technically been accepted by Gala. It is also expected that following Galatasaray’s willingness to negotiate, an agreement over the player’s transfer may soon be reached, and his transfer announced.
