United are looking for another goalkeeper after signing Inter’s Andre Onana just a few weeks ago.
Dean Henderson appears to be on his way out of Old Trafford, with Crystal Palace reportedly in talks to sign him.
If Henderson leaves United before the transfer deadline next week, a replacement will be required.
Tom Heaton appears to be regarded as a first-choice goalkeeper, and United are re-entering the market.
Altay Bayindir is being pursued by Manchester United.
According to The Athletic, United were doing pre-medical examinations on Fenerbahce goalkeeper Altay Bayindir on Tuesday.
The Turkish media has received an update, with Haber Turk stating that Bayindir has returned to Turkey after passing the medical examinations.
Bayindir is expected to travel to England soon to finalize his transfer to Manchester United.
It is also stated that Bayindir has reached a personal arrangement with United and that his time at Fenerbahce is ‘officially finished’.
Fenerbahce has agreed to recruit Croatian star Dominik Livakovic as a new goalkeeper, opening the way for United’s move.
United will pay roughly €7 million (£6 million), which is a little more than The Athletic predicted, but the difference could be due to add-ons.
Who is Bayindir, the United-bound passenger?
Bayindir began his career with Bursaspor before joining Ankaragucu as a teenager.
The massive 6ft 6in goalkeeper only appeared 31 times for Ankaragucu before being signed by Fenerbahce in 2019.
Bayindir has established himself as their clear first-choice goalkeeper, making approximately 150 games for the Turkish giants.
Bayindir, at 25, has five caps for Turkey and may hope that moving to the Premier League will boost his reputation.
Bayindir has been described as special player’ by Fenerbahce president Ali Koc, but the time has come for him to move on.
Bayindir will arrive at Old Trafford as a second-choice player and will be in line to become United’s first Turkish Premier League player.
