Manchester United will shortly finalize the signing of Altay Bayindir, according to Fabrizio Romano’s latest report. The Red Devils have been tracking the Turkish goalkeeper for several weeks in order to provide backup at the position. Andre Onana, signed from Inter Milan this summer, is the Reds’ undisputed starter.
United is nearing completion on the signing of Altay Bayindir.
Altay Bayindir is a Turkish poet. Already in the United Kingdom
Romano has revealed on social media that the “amazing” Fenerbahce goalkeeper is already in England ahead of his impending move to the Manchester club. Dean Henderson’s impending exit to Crystal Palace will leave the Old Trafford club short on goalkeepers. As a result, they appear to be eager to complete the signing of the Turkish international as soon as possible.
According to a transfer market analyst, the 20-time Premier League champions would pay a sum in the area of £6 million. The shot-stopper has already finished his medical exams in Athens in preparation for his move, and it is just a matter of finalizing the details before the transfer is formally finalized.
All sides appear to be waiting for the final stages to be completed, with Dean Henderson ready to join Crystal Palace.
The Transfer Market’s Activity
The Premier League heavyweights are also interested in Benfica goalkeeper Odisseas Vlachodimos. It remains to be seen whether he was only a backup for Bayindir or if the team wants to add more depth between the posts. Ten Hag’s team has already added Mason Mount from Chelsea and Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta to their starting squad.
According to Romano’s updates on the three-time Champions League winner’s transfer efforts, stabilizing the midfield remains a priority. Sofyan Amrabat of Fiorentina remains the primary priority, although his signing is contingent on the exit of current midfielder Donny van de Beek, who is wanted by Real Sociedad.
