Lee Grant: Man Utd close to signing Stoke City keeper

Lee Grant looks set to join Manchester United on a free transfer

Lee Grant looks set to join Manchester United on a free transfer

The midfielder has been linked with a move to Anfield for virtually the entirety of summer but it seems Manchester United are keen to try and attract the midfielder to themselves, rather than their bitter rivals. "This was an opportunity that I couldn't let pass and I'm thrilled to become a part of such a historic club", Grant told Manchester United's official website.

The toxic and unfriendly atmosphere in Spain will surely do little to tempt De Gea toward Madrid, and with a new five-year-deal reported to be close by the Mirror, the Old Trafford faithful can expect to see him between the posts moving forward.

"I've enjoyed every moment of my career so far and I'm now ready to continue learning and improving alongside some of the best players in the game".

Grant, 35, has played over 500 professional games in spells at Derby, Sheffield Wednesday and Burnley.

Summer signing Diogo Dalot will reportedly be included in Manchester United's upcoming pre-season tour after being taken off crutches. The Englishman is now under contract with EFL Championship side Stoke City, having first joined the Potters on loan in the 2016/17 campaign to provide cover for the injured England goalkeeper Jack Butland.

Grant made 30 appearances for Stoke that season but featured just three times in the Premier League last term. Grant will add experience to the goalkeeping department and, potentially, allow the likes of Joel Pereira and Kieran O'Hara go out on loan to gain regular football at senior level. However, his chances in the first-team are likely to be limited, with De Gea and Romero ahead in the pecking order.
