Man Utd tracking Benfica goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos
The 28-year-old recently signed a new long-term contract with Portuguese outfit but this has not ended the gossip surrounding his future. He continues to be linked with an exit and journalist Chorianopoulos claims that United are one of the clubs that are monitoring him ahead of the summer transfer period.
David de Gea competition
Manchester United have had David de Gea in goal for more than 11 seasons but they could start looking into the future. The Spaniard is gifted with fantastic reflexes but there are question marks regarding his ability with the ball.
The 31-year-old international has another year left on his contract after this season, but United could bring in for Vlachodimos in the next transfer window as a potential replacement.
Meanwhile, he has only conceded one goal from outside the box to De Gea’s five. These are some positive traits that United could be monitoring ahead of a possible transfer offer in the summer.
According to Transfermarkt, Vlachodimos is currently priced at £14 million but United may have to pay much more for him on the back of his fresh contract and stand-out displays this season.
Vlachodimos has greatly enhanced his reputation with his Champions League performances. He was terrific against Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus as Benfica reached the knock-out phase.
The Greek will be aiming to keep up his current form for the rest of the season such that he can invite high-profile bids. United can be rest assured that they won’t be alone in the transfer race.
