Manchester United have reached a ‘verbal agreement’ with Benfica for Odysseas Vlachodimos, according to reports.

United are keen to recruit a new number two goalkeeper with Dean Henderson’s future unclear. Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace are both keen on signing the England international.

With Tom Heaton injured, Erik ten Hag won’t sanction any move for Henderson until a new goalkeeper is signed. Nathan Bishop has also left to join Sunderland.

It’s now reported by Sky Germany that United have made an ‘official offer’ for Benfica goalkeeper Vlachodimos.

However, Fenerbahce goalkeeper Bayindir has also been linked and was pictured bidding farewell to the club’s fans on Thursday evening, fuelling further speculation.

Elsewhere, Mason Greenwood is attracting interest from an unnamed Albanian side. Manchester United announced on Monday that both parties had decided Greenwood would continue his football career elsewhere.

The Englishman remains a United employee but won’t return to the club or train with them. United will assist him to find a new club, though.

Since then, Greenwood has since been linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League with Al Ettifaq, a story which manager Steven Gerrard branded ‘fake news’ on social media. However, talkSPORT claim an Albanian side have registered an interest in signing Greenwood.
