Manchester United Set To Sign 35-Year-Old Goalkeeper

Manchester United Set To Sign 35-Year-Old Goalkeeper

Manchester United are set to make their third signing of the summer - but it's not one supporters would have hoped for.

Should the deal go through, 35-year-old Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant will act as third choice shot-stopper to David de Gea and Sergio Romero, according to a report in The Telegraph.

The veteran goalie moved to Stoke City on loan as an initial backup to Jack Butland in the summer of 2016 but his performances impressed so much that the Staffordshire side signed him on a permanent transfer of £1.3 million the following January.

He won Stoke's Player of the Year award in 2017, earned in part to a brilliant man of the match display against Man United at Old Trafford, back in October 2016, the game ending 1-1.

His contract with the Potters ends this summer and he's expected to now sign a deal with the Red Devils on a deal that's expected to last a year.

Grant has represented England at youth level and spent a majority of his career with clubs in the north and midlands, despite being raised in Hemel Hempstead and starting his career at Watford.

Man United could add Grant to their list of summer signings. Fred signed from FC Shakhtar Donetsk for £52 million and Diogo Dalot moved from Porto for £19 million to Old Trafford already this window.

Supporters will be hoping that there's more business to come, as Man United look to improve upon what was an underwhelming runners-up finish in the Premier League last season.
