Manchester United make contact with David Raya as pressure mounts on David de Gea – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United are among several clubs that have made contact with Brentford goalkeeper David Raya.

The Peoples Person reported a few days ago that Raya is on United’s radar.

The Red Devils are in the running for the 27-year-old along with Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea with both London clubs also in the market for a goalkeeper.

Raya has made it more than clear that he wants a new challenge and will not extend his contract at the Brentford Community Stadium.

His current terms expire at the end of next season and he will become a free agent soon, so the Bees may be forced to sell this summer to avoid losing him for free.

The pressure is building on David de Gea. The United goalkeeper produced another sub-par performance against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

De Gea’s distribution, footwork and dominance inside his box were all aspects of the game that came into question as United suffered a 3-2 defeat.

Relay reports that the Red Devils have contacted Raya’s representatives to explore the possibility of a summer transfer.

“David Raya is assessing the options he will have next summer.

“Up to three top-6 teams have already contacted him: Tottenham, Manchester United and Chelsea. The Spurs are looking for a replacement for veteran Lloris, who ends in 2024, while the Red Devils and Blues are also testing the market.

“At 27 years old, Raya is making two considerations before making the final decision about his future: measuring himself in the Champions League and continuing in the National Team squad with Luis De la Fuente after having been a regular with Luis Enrique.”

Raya was part of the Spanish contingent that went to Qatar while De Gea was not part of the call.

The Brentford man is technically gifted and an excellent goalkeeper. His contributions to Brentford this season have been invaluable, with Thomas Frank’s side enjoying a fruitful campaign.
