Martin Dubravka: Manchester United in talks with Newcastle over goalkeeper loan deal | Soccer News

Martin Dubravka has told Newcastle he wants to leave the club and join Manchester United.

Dubravka was relegated to the No.2 choice following Nick Pope’s arrival at St James’ Park and was not in the squad for their Carabao Cup tie at Tranmere on Wednesday night.

Manchester United are in the hunt for a goalkeeper to compete with David De Gea and Tom Heaton after Dean Henderson joined Nottingham Forest on loan.

Talks continue between the clubs, with Manchester United wanting a loan with the option of a permanent transfer depending on appearances, while Newcastle prefer a permanent deal – or at the very least a loan with an obligation to buy.

Dubravka’s contract at Newcastle ends in 2025.

Man Utd manager Eric Ten Haag is eager to bring in another goalkeeper to add pressure to first-choice David de Gea, who was a liability in their 4-0 loss to Brentford this month -this.

The club have looked at a number of other goalkeepers, including Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Yann Sommer.

The former Premier League champions have failed to qualify for the Champions League this season and have just three points from their first three Premier League games, with two losses and one win, against Liverpool last week.

Trapp: Why I rejected Man Utd

Eintracht Frankfurt guardian Kevin Trapp said on Thursday that it had received and rejected an offer to join Manchester Unitedopting instead to stay with the Europa League champions who take part in the Champions League group stage this season.

“There has been a lot of talk in recent days about an interest from Manchester United,” Trapp said on social media. “It is correct that I have a written offer.”

“Manchester United are a world-class team and for me to consider that and think about it is something I’m sure everyone can relate to. Yesterday, however, I informed both clubs that I decided for Eintracht.”

Trapp, 32, who played for Paris Saint-Germain between 2015 and 2018, has settled in well at Frankfurt since his return, initially on loan in 2018. He also has six caps for Germany.
