David Raya’s camp feel Tottenham are ahead of Manchester United in race for Brentford keeper – Man United News And Transfer News
After eight months at the helm of United, Eric ten Haag has a good idea of the areas that need to be upgraded before next season.
The Red Devils have undergone a sea change under the Dutchman, with the Carabao Cup added to the trophy cabinet, while the club prepares to face Sevilla in the Europa League quarter-finals and the FA Cup heads to Wembley Stadium .
However, their chances of contending for the title in the Premier League were sadly snuffed out, a timely reminder that the Dutch boss still has much to improve.
Need Hyundai GK
The most obvious one is up front, where the club lacks reliable strikers, but the manager will also be aware of the need to step up goalscoring.
Ten Witches’ style involves hitting high lines to squeeze opponents. To do this, the goalkeeper must be good at strafing and passing the ball.
But sadly, United No 1 David de Gea is not a modern goalkeeper. Blocking is his strength, and while that’s waning as well, it’s still his primary attribute.
But when it comes to passes from the back, sweeps and even crosses, the Spaniard fails miserably in all of these areas.
The Ten Witches dismissed claims he was unhappy with his keeper and said the Spain international is improving but he needs someone who is ready for the challenge
The Red Devils have been widely linked with Brentford’s David Raya, with the Bees goalkeeper saying he is not willing to renew his contract.
Spurs lead Eid chase
His contract expires in 2024 and Manchester United could sign him for £300-40m. But for now, it looks like Tottenham are leading the charge as they search for a long-term replacement for captain Hugo Lloris.
according to team talk”They will allow him to go, but only if the price is right.
“The people at Raya still believe that interest in him will see a bid from a big club. They believe he is high on Tottenham’s list of wanting to replace Hugo Lloris.”
Brentford are prepared to keep him and lose him for free if they do not receive a satisfactory offer. United should try to beat Spurs for the Spaniard.
Raya’s ability to pass the ball from the back and his sweeping sweeps has allowed him to overtake de Gea in the Spanish national team, which could happen at United as well.
