Manchester United,Man Utd scouts goalkeepers as David de Gea’s future looms.

Manchester United has scouted Porto and Portugal goalkeeper David de Gea. He is honored at least six times this season. David de Gea’s contract expires in June 2023. Therefore,  United must choose a new goalkeeper soon.

United has the option to extend De Gea’s contract by a year. However, his per-week weekweek salary of £375,000 amounting complicates the decision. De Gea’s ability to adapt to Ten Hag’s system raises long-term concerns about his earnings.De Gea is open to renegotiating his contract.  He wishes to extend on reduced terms, but United is exploring all options. Costa is among them. However, United’s task of signing him became more difficult this week, when he extended his Porto contract until 2027 with a €75m release clause.Such a move would be costly for United.They are targeting right-back and center-forward additions in 2023. Central midfield remains a need despite having overspent in 2022.

United scouts are pushing the idea of pursuing Costa. The decision-makers makers find him fit. The core reason may be the bill of a modern goalkeeper with strong reflexes and distribution like Liverpool, Alisson,  and Manchester City’s Ederson. Costa’s penalty-saving record is legendary.

It is also learned thatTen Hag likes De Gea’s work ethic and presence around Carrington and on the pitch. De Gea made a miraculous double save against Real Sociedad on Thursday and beat West Ham on Sunday with saves from Kurt Zouma and Declan Rice. Manchester United also has Dean Henderson, who has long eyed the club’s first-choice goalkeeper slot, on loan with Nottingham Forest and will decide on him at the end of the season. Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak is also admired.
