Manchester United and Real Madrid are among the clubs keeping close tabs on Marcin Bulka’s situation over a move possible.

According to Fichajes, Manchester United and Real Madrid are keeping tabs on Marcin Bulka’s situation ahead of the summer. The two giants of European football could angle a move for a new goalkeeper, with mild concerns over their existing options, with the 24-year-old OGC Nice star now emerging as a target.

Marcin Bulka has big suitors

Marcin Bulka has been a good presence between the sticks for OGC Nice and has proven his worth as Kasper Schmeichel’s able replacement. The 24-year-old emerged from the ranks of the Chelsea academy and made his journey all the way to the Ligue 1 side while also featuring for PSG briefly.

Now, with his performances for Nice, he already has a few suitors lining up for his signature ahead of the summer. Manchester United and Real Madrid are mentioned in the hunt, with the duo keeping constant tabs on the 24-year-old goalkeeper’s displays for the Ligue 1 outfit.

The duo have seen links to numerous goalkeepers since the middle of the season after some doubts about the long-term futures of Andre Onana and Thibaut Courtois. In any case, there is no absolute certainty that the Polish international is their firm choice to replace those current options. But it is certainly an interesting target.

Real Madrid, Manchester United eyeing a new goalkeeper?

The early season form of Andre Onana called many to question Manchester United’s decision to spend big on the Cameroonian. He has since recovered form, but there are still some lingering doubts about whether the Red Devils should rely on the former Inter Milan star for the long-term future.

Hence, some within the club will not oppose bringing in a new goalkeeper who could potentially compete with Onana. Meanwhile, Real Madrid are worried about Thibaut Courtois’s long-term productivity following a season full of injuries.

The Belgian had only returned from an ACL problem but soon suffered another knee issue that will see him miss the remainder of the campaign and possibly even the Euros. Real Madrid remain linked with a host of names like Diogo Costa and Mike Maignan. They could also rely on Andriy Lunin, who has since ousted on-loan Chelsea star Kepa Arrizabalaga.
