Man United have ‘reach agreement’ to sign £14m target from Real Madrid this summer

According to reports per (Spanish journal, Nacional) Manchester United already have an agreement in place to sign Andriy Lunin from Real Madrid in the summer.

Andre Onana has not lived up to expectations in his maiden campaign in England and although his form has improved in the second half of the season, Manchester United are still on the look out for another goalkeeper and Lunin has emerged as a serious target.

It has been reported that Real Madrid have trying to agree a new contract with Lunin, but as per Football365, the Spanish giants have ‘been fruitless’ in their attempts to tie him down to a fresh deal.

It is yet to be determined what Real Madrid’s asking price for Lunin is, however, Transfermarkt has valued him at £14 million.

Manchester United have also been linked with the signing of Valencia’s Giorgi Mamardashvili by Fichajes and he is likely to be the alternate choice if Lunin decides to extend his contract at Real Madrid.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s stake in Manchester United is expected to bring in an injection of funds which will be channeled towards improving the squad and a goalkeeper’s signing for the second successive year is being mooted with Lunin being the Red Devils’ ‘priority target
