Manchester United are reportedly closing in on signing two goalkeepers, with a deal for Japanese stopped Zion Suzuki in the final stages.
The Red Devils have been tracking the Urawa Red Diamonds goalkeeper for six seasons, and reports from Sponichi have claimed that United will make the goalkeeper the most expensive player in J League history.
United closing in on move for Zion Suzuki
Man United remain keen on Andre Onana this summer, and any move for Suzuki is unlikely to impact their stance on the Inter Milan goalkeeper. However, the club sees the Japanese stopper as a long-term player of interest, and could be a back-up option for the forthcoming season.
United have been keeping tabs on the J League keeper since 2017, and he is widely considered to be one of the best young goalkeepers in world soccer.
The reports have claimed that the Premier League giants have made an $8 million bid for the 20-year-old-old, and talks have progressed smoothly.
Suzuki has made 28 senior appearances for Urawa Reds in the J League, and his performances were also rewarded with a first Japanese senior appearance in 2022.
