Manchester United are interested in signing Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant, according to The Mirror. The report claims that Jose Mourinho wants to sign cover for David de Gea and Sergio Romero ahead of the new season and the 35-year-old Grant is the experienced candidate that our manager has chosen.
Grant played three games for Stoke last season with Jack Butland being the No.1 for the relegated side. The report suggests that Grant also wants to make a dream move to Old Trafford. The English keeper knows that his playing time would be limited, with De Gea and Romero already at the club.
This would come as a huge problem for Stoke manager Gary Rowett as he could lose Grant and also his No.1 keeper Jack Butland, as the keeper wants a return to the Premier League.
For us, this signing could be a good option to have in the side. Grant should not cost a lot given that he was bought by Stoke for £1.3million in 2017 and he can do a decent job should he be picked.
There might be a number of young keepers who could do the job in a League Cup game but it would be better to loan out youngsters and keep an old head in the side, just for the experience the Englishman would provide to the team.
