Manchester United target rejects move in hopes of securing game time ahead of Olympics

Japan international Zion Suzuki has reportedly rejected a move to Manchester United, as per Sponichi.

The Red Devils were in talks over a £5 million deal that would see the goalkeeper provide backup to their latest recruit, Andre Onana.

However, Suzuki has turned down the prospect of playing for the 20-time English champions as he looks to secure more game time ahead of the Paris Olympics next year.

He will instead stay with his current club, Urawa Reds, where he is the first choice between the sticks.

Now, United will continue scouring the market for an alternative before the new season kicks off in August, as they’re expected to be left with even fewer options by the opening day – Dean Henderson is closing in on a permanent move to Nottingham Forest, Matej Kovar will depart on loan again, Nathan Bishop has agreed a deal with Sunderland and Tom Heaton is being targeted by fellow Premier League club Luton Town.
