Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur make contact with Brentford shot-stopper David Raya
The three English top-flight giants are monitoring the Spain international’s situation in West London. His current contract with the Bees is set to expire at the end of next season.
Last week, the shot-stopper rejected a proposal from the Gtech Community Stadium side to extend his stay. As a result, Thomas Frank’s team are open to parting ways with the 27-year-old next summer if they cannot tie him down to a new deal.
Graham Potter has two decent goalkeepers at his disposal at the moment. However, Edouard Mendy has been underperforming for some time now, while Kepa Arrizabalaga has been inconsistent for the Stamford Bridge side over the years.
On the other hand, Spurs are looking for a new shot-stopper. Hugo Lloris is in the final stretch of his career. The North London side are eyeing a successor for the France international.
As for United, the Red Devils are keen on replacing David de Gea, who has around six months left on his current contract. Although, the Old Trafford side do have the option to extend the 32-year-old’s deal by a further year.
The former Atletico Madrid star has been Erik ten Hag’s preferred option in between the sticks. Since the previous campaign, the Spain international has been in fine form for us.
Raya has developed into a quality goalkeeper at Brentford. This season, the Bees are flying high and are sitting in eighth position in the Premier League table at the moment.

De Gea has proven his abilities once again in the current campaign. However, it remains to be seen whether the 32-year-old’s stay in Manchester will be extended. It will also be interesting to see if United will turn to Raya to make him our next number one.
