Manchester United are reportedly closing in on the capture of Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

Manchester United are keen on adding a backup to goalkeeper David de Gea and are set to sign Slovakian international Martin Dubravka on a loan-to-buy deal according to Football Insider, having already agreed on personal terms with the Newcastle United goalkeeping ace.

The 33-year-old Newcastle United goalkeeper has fallen down the pecking order at St. James’ Park since the arrival of Nick Pope from Burnley and is looking to leave the club in search of more game time.

Meanwhile, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag wants to add more competition for places in the goalkeeping department following the regression of David de Gea. And Dubravka could prove to be a shrewd acquisition for Manchester United.

The 33-year-old has proven himself in the Premier League over the years and is likely to push the Spaniard for a starting berth this season. Dubravka is well settled in English football, and the Newcastle United goalkeeper is likely to make an immediate impact at Old Trafford. The Slovak could end up proving to be a bargain for Manchester United for the reported outlay.

The report from Football Insider claims that the player is keen on moving to Old Trafford, and he has already communicated his desire to leave to Newcastle United. The player is set to join Manchester United on a loan deal, and the Premier League giants will be able to sign him permanently at the end of the season for a fee of around £5 million.

Manchester United have been linked with the likes of Kevin Trapp from Eintracht Frankfurt as well. But the German international decided to stay put in the Bundesliga as he believes that he is likely to get more game time there.

Meanwhile, Manchester United continue to work hard to strengthen their squad before the transfer window slams shut. Brazilian winger Antony is reportedly a priority target for the Red Devils. The Premier League giants have not been able to agree on a fee with Ajax so far, despite offering an eye-watering sum of around €90 million for the talented young winger.
