23-year-old Serbian goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic has been linked with a summer move to Liverpool and Manchester United.
Djordje Petrovic has been quite impressive in the Major League Soccer. And the performances of the New England Revolution goalkeeper have caught the attention of Premier League clubs Liverpool and Manchester United as per Daily Mirror.
The 23-year-old Serbian goalkeeper is highly rated and has a big future ahead of him. Petrovic will want to play for a big club soon. And the opportunity to join Manchester United or Liverpool will be an attractive proposition.
The talented young goalkeeper has the potential to replace Manchester United star David de Gea in the long run. In the short term, he could be a backup option to the Spaniard. Erik ten Hag is expected to lose Dean Henderson in the summer, and he will need to bring in a proper replacement.
As for Liverpool, Alisson Becker is the first-choice goalkeeper at Anfield, and Petrovic is unlikely to displace him as the club first choice shot-stopper anytime soon. But he could replace youngster Caoimhin Kelleher.
Kelleher has been linked with a move away from Anfield as he looks to play regularly. Jurgen Klopp cannot afford to go into a new season with just one reliable goalkeeper at his disposal. And Petrovic could be the ideal replacement for Kelleher if he moves on. Furthermore, Spanish goalkeeper Adrian will leave the club on a free transfer.
Both Premier League clubs would represent an excellent move for the 23-year-old, and it remains to be seen where the ends up. Liverpool and Manchester United have a proven track record of transforming talented players into established stars. And Petrovic will fancy his chances of fulfilling his potential with a move to either club.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are fighting to secure Champions League qualification, and it remains to be seen whether they manage to finish in the top four. Manchester United are more likely to secure Champions League qualification. And that could give the Red Devils a major advantage in the transfer race. The Red Devils have more financial resources compared to Liverpool as well.
