Manchester United are nearing a deal to sign goalkeeper Altay Bayindir, who will serve as a backup to Andre Onana.
Bayindir was examined by doctors in Greece earlier this week, according to The Athletic.
Report by HaberTurk Bayindir will soon fly to England to complete his relocation. He had vital business to attend to first.
Bayindir bids farewell Fenerbahce defeated FC Twente in Europa Conference League qualifying last night.
Bayindir was named on the bench rather than the starting lineup. Irfan Egribayat was in goal since new addition Dominik Livakovic had not yet been registered.
A video showed Bayindir waving goodbye to fans as he walked onto the pitch at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium.
What Manchester United wants in a back-up goalkeeper Altay Bayindir checks all the boxes for what Manchester United wants in a back-up goalkeeper to deputize Andre Onana.
He is inexpensive, costing roughly £6 million, is a decent age to grow at 25, and is already a senior international for his country, having earned five caps.
Bayindir has already made four appearances this season and has played 145 games for Fenerbahce, recording 44 clean sheets.
If Andre Onana is called up for the African Nations Cup in January, Bayindir has the expertise and recent games action to fill in.
A brief appearance by Fred
Altay Bayindir has had a brief encounter with new Fenerbahce signing Fred, who provided his first assist for his new team in Friday night’s 5-1 win.
They did not, however, play together, with Bayindir sitting on the bench for Fred’s two appearances so far.
At the absolute least, they will have spent some time together, and the Brazilian will have given the Manchester United bound goalie some guidance.
