Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant closing in on Manchester United move

By July 2, 2018No Comments

Manchester United are closing in on a move for Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant as Sam Johnstone heads to West Brom, Press Association Sport understands.

With David De Gea and Sergio Romero the stand-out goalkeeping choices, Jose Mourinho is set to bring in veteran Grant as third choice.

Press Association Sport understands a deal is close for the Stoke shot-stopper, while Johnstone is set to join relegated West Brom for an initial £6.5million fee that could well rise.

The 25-year-old has been on a variety of loans since coming through the United academy and impressed at Aston Villa last season.

Joel Pereira, a goalkeeper Mourinho thinks very highly of, also looks set to leave Old Trafford, albeit only on a loan deal once the Grant transfer is completed.

United have brought in highly-rated Porto full-back Diogo Dalot this summer and Brazil midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.
