Manchester United are expected to allow two goalkeepers to leave on loan to lower league sides in this summer’s transfer window, according to reports.
The return of Dean Henderson at Old Trafford after two excellent seasons at Sheffield United means Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now has an excess of first-team ‘keepers.
Henderson’s short-term future remains unclear but he will be not returning to Bramall Lane for a third consecutive loan spell after the Blades confirmed the transfer of Aaron Ramsdale.
Regardless of whether Henderson stays or leaves this summer, young duo Joel Pereira and Matej Kovar are both ready to seal loan moves in the hope of playing regular first-team football.
According to the Sun, Pereira, now 24, is set to join Championship outfit Huddersfield Town on a temporary deal.
Pereira has been at United for eight years, but has failed to impress in five loan spells, most recently at Hearts.
It’s difficult to see a long-term future for the Portugal youth international at Old Trafford, given Solskjaer’s strength in depth between the sticks.
Meanwhile, highly-regarded young shot-stopper Matej Kovar is another player set to leave United to gain experience elsewhere.
Manchester Evening News report that the 19-year-old is attracting interest from League One sides Swindon Town and Doncaster in the summer window.
The report adds that talented midfield duo James Garner and Dylan Levitt are also expected to seal loan transfers this summer.
