Manchester United willing to pay release clause for Croatia goalkeeper

Dinamo Zagreb’s Dominik Livakovic is the latest goalkeeper to be linked with a move to Manchester United.

Earlier today, we brought you a report stating that Manchester United loanee Jack Butland will leave the club this summer before joining Rangers.

Livakovic was a standout performer at the 2022 World Cup, playing a key role in Croatia reaching the semi-finals in Qatar.

While the 28-year-old was linked with a move to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in January, Jutarnji (via Sport Witness) in Croatia claim that United are ready to pay the player’s release clause of €10 million.

That’s more than affordable if United are looking for a new first choice or back-up option in the summer. We must keep in mind that Dean Henderson is another likely absentee in the summer.

David de Gea is out of contract at the end of the season and, while United have an option to extend his deal for another season, the club will be trying to tie the Spaniard down to a new deal on lower wages.

A lot of De Gea’s performances this season have raised questions over whether he is the ideal type of keeper for a side trying to play out from the back. Furthermore, his unwilling to come and claim the ball from corner kicks is frustrating to say the least.
