Bruno Fernandes put the Red Devils ahead at Selhurst Park, but Michael Olise scored an incredible free-kick in stoppage time to ensure the spoils were shared. Erik ten Hag’s men now go into Sunday’s clash with Arsenal eight points behind the leaders, though they have also played a game more. It will be interesting to see how United respond to the setback, and if they can stand up to the giant test at the Emirates Stadium.
United are said to be interested in a move for Brentford goalkeeper David Raya.
The Red Devils’ current number one David De Gea faces an uncertain future, out of contract at the end of the season. The Spaniard has improved significantly this season, but he is one of the highest earners, and United may only offer him a reduced wage if they do want to offer a new deal. But it seems the club are doing their homework on possible replacements.
According to The Telegraph, United are eyeing Raya, who has been excellent for Brentford, as a possible replacement.
The Raya interested may have emerged because United have missed out on a deal for Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer.
Bayern Munich have officially signed Sommer for around £6million plus add-ons. United were said to be interested in a move for the Swiss stopper, but Bayern have beaten them to the chase as they look for back-up for Manuel Neuer.
The Red Devils must now look elsewhere if De Gea is to move on, though, and United could arguably do with more depth anyway.
