Although Manchester United is still trying to make changes in the backup position, Andre Onana has been named to the playing team as the new starting custodian.
Dean Henderson is not pleased with taking second place. Consequently, the Englishman’s decision to relocate still seems likely. Altay Bayindir is one of the candidates mentioned for the club to replace Hendo.
The most recent transfer report comes from Haber Turk, with a translation provided by Sport Witness. According to them, Bayindir’s transfer to United is getting closer.
As Bayindir traveled to Greece yesterday to conduct some medical tests, it appears that the contract is valued at just around £6 million. These exams went smoothly.
According to the article, the 25-year-old is scheduled to arrive in England “shortly” to complete a deal with United. This implies that Bayindir will be signed, but also more. Additionally, it makes us think that Henderson will likely be sold by the Old Trafford team.
A backup keeper’s duties mostly depend on their stylistic compatibility. They require someone who can fit in and is familiar with the system well enough to perform satisfactorily in a short amount of time.
Bayindir clearly fills that job for Ten Hag, or else money would not have been authorized for his signature.
With his extensive playing experience in the Turkish league, Bayindir undoubtedly believes he can displace Onana in the starting lineup. He will undoubtedly benefit from such an outlook when this trade is made public.
