Brighton’s Spanish goalkeeper Robert Sanchez has emerged as Manchester United‘s latest target. The 25-year-old goalkeeper was unpopular in the era of Roberto de Zerbi. Who gave Jason Steele a place in the starting line-up. And he is likely to worsen his status. On Monday, the Seagulls confirmed the signing of Bart Verbrucken from Anderlecht for £16.3 million.
Sanchez is one of the most consistent players in the Premier League. He has the good footwork that Erik ten Hag needs. And has a clean sheet against United in all 120 minutes of the FA Cup semi-finals.
Although Robert Sanchez was born in Spain and is a player for the Spanish national team. But he has an English father. And has been in Brighton’s academy since the age of 15. Therefore has the status of a homegrown player UFABET
Brighton could be looking at selling Sanchez for £30m. While United and other Premier League clubs started to pay attention.
The Red Devils intend to sign Andre Onana from Inter Milan, who previously worked with Ten Hag at Ajax. But the £50m price tag means they are looking for options. Others are cheaper in order to spend more of their budget on finding new strikers.
Feyenoord’s Justin Bailow is another option, as is Frankfurt’s Kevin Trapp.
