Manchester United: Daniel Bachmann a surprise target

Manchester United: Daniel Bachmann a surprise target -Manchester United News

Manchester United are locked in talks over a surprising target in the shape of Watford goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann, according to Fabrizio Romano

The lowdown: One out…

The Red Devils could be in the market for a recognised number two stopper in the near future as Dean Henderson continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

Having previously challenged David de Gea for the number one berth, the 25-year-old England international only made five appearances last season and is unsurprisingly looking for a move away during a World Cup year.

New manager Erik ten Hag appears to have wasted little time in identifying a replacement in the shape of recently relegated Bachmann…

The latest: One in…

Taking to Twitter, respected journalist Romano has claimed that the United hierarchy have already opened discussions over a move for the 27-year-old.

He said: “Manchester United are in talks with Watford to sign Daniel Bachmann as second/third goalkeeper. Watford will only consider a permanent deal.

“Bachmann among options for Man United to replace Dean Henderson, who’s one step away from joining Nottingham Forest as revealed last week.”

Manchester United fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The verdict: Why not?

Ultimately, the backup goalkeeper is likely to remain relatively unseen, given De Gea’s almost blemish-free injury record since arriving in Manchester.

Bachmann however has made 146 domestic career outings across spells with Stoke, Kilmarnock, Wrexham, Bury and Ross County, as well as representing Australia on 13 occasions at the senior international level, so while it would be a surprise to see the Red Devils shopping in the second tier, he could be an able deputy when required.

Valued at £2.25million and under contract at Watford until 2024 (Transfermarkt), signing the 6 foot 2 keeper’ – who was labelled ‘brilliant’ by teammate Kirk Broadfoot after a penalty save against Rangers in the Scottish Cup – would be a relatively inexpensive venture for the Old Trafford outfit and would therefore leave money in the coffers for a much-needed rebuilds elsewhere in the squad.
