Race reportedly heating up for 24-year-old as Man Utd and Chelsea join queue of suitors

Man Utd’s goalkeeping situation is uncertain this summer, and the fans in the Transfer Tavern are growing increasingly concerned…

David De Gea has been touted with a move away, but it would appear as though Jose Mourinho has a plan up his sleeve.

According to the Daily Star, Jack Butland is on Man Utd’s radar this summer – with the Englishman seemingly seen as a potential replacement for De Gea should he depart. Any move will be difficult to complete, though, with the likes of Chelsea and Man City also reportedly keen on a move.

It will come as no surprise to learn that Butland is attracting suitors, with the English goalkeeper arguably one of England’s brightest talents. A cruel injury has hampered his development this season, but there is no doubting how impressive he was prior to that. An excellent shot-stopper with agility and aerial dominance – the 24-year-old would certainly be able to do a job for a top Premier League side.

Chelsea’s need for his arrival could be about to get more severe, with reports linking Asmir Begovic with a move away. Should that happen, Butland would need to make a decision on whether he is ready for a bit-part role at Stamford Bridge, should the Blues make a move of course.
