Man United ‘heavily scouting’ goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic

Man United have eyes on MLS goalkeeper, Djordje Petrovic.

David de Gea’s brilliance has been on full display recently, though there remains doubters amongst the fans, in regard to the Spaniard’s tactical fit.

The number one is apparently in contract talks with United at this point in time, however, there’s a chance Erik ten Hag could look to move in a different direction upon De Gea’s contract expiry.

Several goalkeepers have already been linked with a potential Old Trafford switch. Over the last few days, another name has been thrown into the mix; Djordje Petrovic.

He’s a name we’re not all-too-familiar with, with Djordge currently plying his trade fo MLS outfit, New England Revolution – as well as the Serbia national team.

It’s Tom Bogert with the latest claim on that front. On Sunday, he tweeted that United are ‘heavily scouting’ the 23-year-old shot-stopper.

As things stand, there has been no official contact made between the clubs, though Petrovic is quickly being recognised as arguably the best goalkeeper over in the United States. He already has a couple of Serbia caps.

It just comes back to what United want in their goalkeeper. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that Petrovic is going to be the best thing since sliced bread – though there’s clearly something about him.

There’s always a risk when you bring in someone from the MLS, too. Without wanting to disrespect the league, there’s a big gulf in class between there and the Premier League.

If United are intent on bringing in Petrovic, I’d like for him to sit in behind a more senior goalkeeper for a year or two, in order to get fully up to speed before being thrown into the deep end.

Do you think a Man United move for Djordje Petrovic would make sense? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
