Manchester United allowed David De Gea, who won the PL Golden Glove last term, to leave for free and replaced him by luring Andre Onana from Inter Milan.

The Cameroonian international has had average outings in the opening two league games and suddenly, the Red Devils are linked with another goalie in the form of Odysseas Vlachodimos.

Last night, Fabrizio Romano revealed the Old Trafford club are looking to lure the 29-year-old shot stopper, who is expected to leave Benfica this summer.

As per the Italian journalist, the Greek international could come in to replace second choice GK, Dean Henderson, who may end up leaving United for Palace or Forest.

According to The Mirror, Vlachodimos is prepared to join Man Utd but they may have to activate the release clause of £51.2m (60 million euros) to sign him from the Portuguese champions.

The 33-capped star featured in every league game for the Eagles as they went on to win the Liga Nos title last season but things have changed after the first game this term.

In the opening league fixture, Benfica lost to Boavista 3-2 and Vlachodimos was openly criticized by manager, Roger Schmidt.

At the weekend, in the contest vs Estrela, the goalie was not even part of the squad and as per today’s version of O Jogo, he is ready to leave the club before the transfer window closes next week.

In all fairness, after signing Onana for £47.2m, there is no way Man Utd will splash £51.2m for a back-up goal keeper, who will turn 30 in April 2024.
