Reports: Man Utd To Make Shock Bid For 35yo Keeper

Premier League outfit Manchester United reportedly want to sign a 35-year-old goalkeeper, who is also an Ireland international.

Reports: Man Utd Offered Huge Swap Deal For Pogba

According to the Daily Mail, the Red Devils are looking at bringing in Stoke City shot-stopper Lee Grant as a back-up to David de Gea and Sergio Romero.

United's move for the Irishman may come as a surprise for many, but manager Jose Mourinho is apparently on the lookout for a new third-choice goalkeeper, with Portugal U21 international Joel Pereira expected to go out on loan in the 2018/19 campaign.

Grant is believed to be interested in a move to Old Trafford, and is likely to push for a free transfer, despite having one year left on his current deal with the Potters.

However, Stoke are said to be looking for a transfer fee for the goalkeeper as they are expecting to lose England shot-stopper Jack Butland following their relegation from the English top flight.

The veteran glovesman moved to Stoke from Derby County for a reported fee of £1.3 million (R23 million) in 2017.

Grant made only five appearances for the Potters last season, and conceded nine goals, seven of them in the league.
