Man United look set to sign new goalkeeper

Man United are set to sign goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic from Dinamo Zagreb, according to reports in Croatia.

The 28-year-old club captain starred for his national team at the World Cup, helping guide Croatia to a third-place finish. Livakovic, who has been at Dinamo since 2015, believes now may be his only opportunity to make the leap to a major European league and Manchester United want a new goalkeeper who can seriously compete with David De Gea, with back-up goalkeepers Tom Heaton and Jack Butland not providing a sufficient threat to the Spaniard’s place in the team.

Manchester United transfer news: Dominik Livakovic heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford

As reported in the Croatian daily sports newspaper Sportske Novosti, United are close to buying out the Croatia’s number one release clause, worth roughly $11m, to secure his services at Old Trafford.

During the World Cup, Livakovic gained a reputation of being a top penalty saver on Croatia’s run to the semi-finals, saving four penalties in total in two shootout wins for the Croats, against Japan and Brazil respectively.
