Martin Dubravka is on the verge of joining Manchester United on loan to provide competition for David de Gea.
The Red Devils have agreed a deal in principle with Newcastle to sign Dubravka.
Dubravka will move to Old Trafford on loan, but United have the option to make the deal permanent – an option that will become obligatory depending on the number of appearances he makes this season.
According to Sky Sports, the Slovakia international informed Newcastle earlier this week that he wanted to leave to join the Reds.
The keeper was pushed down the pecking order at Newcastle following the arrival of Nick Pope, which tells you we haven’t gone out and signed one of the best keepers in the world.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claims a full agreement has been reached with a £5m buy option not mandatory. He adds that the keeper will travel to Manchester tonight before undergoing a medical tomorrow.

Dubravka will come in and compete for places with De Gea as well as Tom Heaton. He is bound to come in as second choice, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he pushed the Spaniard for a place in the line-up.
United have been linked with a number of keepers this summer, with Ten Hag about to settle for Dubravka rather than Borussia Monchengladbach’s Yann Sommer.
