Manchester United has set its sights on Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez as the club aims to secure a cost-effective deal for the talented Spaniard. Sanchez is expected to depart the coastal club this summer after slipping down to the third-choice position following the arrival of Bart Verbruggen from Anderlecht. With the departure of David De Gea due to contract expiry, United is in need of a goalkeeper, but the club must navigate within its financial constraints.
According to a report from The Mail, Brighton would demand a fee of around £30 million for Sanchez, attracting attention from United and other Premier League clubs. While United had initially shown interest in signing Andre Onana from Inter Milan, who had previously worked with their manager Erik ten Hag at Ajax, Onana’s hefty price tag of £50 million has prompted United to explore more affordable alternatives. This strategic shift allows the club to allocate a larger portion of their initial budget toward acquiring a striker.
Among the potential options being considered by United, Feyenoord’s Justin Bijlow and Kevin Trapp from Frankfurt have caught the staff’s attention. These goalkeepers are valued within a similar price range, making them viable candidates as United seeks to bolster its squad while adhering to budgetary restrictions.
The pursuit of Robert Sanchez by Manchester United is a clear indication of the club’s intention to identify talented players at reasonable prices. As negotiations and discussions unfold, United remains committed to securing the services of a goalkeeper who can contribute to the team’s success in the upcoming season.
