MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly planning to move for Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer this month rather than wait.
The Red Devils have been left short after Newcastle recalled Martin Dubravka from his loan at Old Trafford.
The stopper was restricted to just two Carabao Cup outings following his arrival but is now back at the Toon.
And TalkSPORT are now claiming that United are “ready to bring forward their move” for Sommer after being “short-handed” by Dubravka’s exit.
The 34-year-old has just represented his country at the World Cup and becomes a free agent in June when his contract at Borussia Monchengladbach.
This report states that United “were already working on a deal” to sign him at the end of the campaign.
Now they are “hoping to persuade” the Bundesliga club to do business now.
Erik ten Hag’s side are looking to snap-up the veteran for a knockdown fee.
And they will be hoping to get a potential transfer sorted as soon as possible in order to get cover in.
Sommer came through the ranks back in his homeland with Basel but left them for Gladbach in 2014.
He made the Bundesliga team of the season in 2020 and has played over 300 matches for the club.
He has also won 80 caps for Switzerland.
