At present, Manchester United are not interested in extending the loan of Slovakian player Martin Dubravka. Dubravka was loaned out by Manchester United in the last summer transfer to play as backup to United’s first choice Goalkeeper David De Gea. This season, the Newcastle loanee haven’t played a single game for the Red Devils. But recently in the Carabao Cup, he made his debut against Aston Villa.
After United loaned out Dean Henderson, there was a shortage in the goalkeeping department. De Gea’s contract is about to rescind at the end of the 2022/23 season. If United failed to find any replacement for the Spanish goalkeeper, they may be considered to extend Dubravka’s contract.
Manchester United are not interested in extending the loan of Martin Dubravka
Recently ESPN reported, Manchester United doesn’t want to extend Dubravka’s loan or sign him permanently. They are currently negotiating to sign Yann Sommer as another goalkeeping option. Due to the signing of Nick Pope in Newcastle and a lack of first-team opportunities at Old Trafford, a permanent transfer other than the Magpies is probably best for Dubravka.
In the last game against Cadiz, Dubravka conceded four times. It is yet another disappointment for the reserve keeper as he had conceded against the La Liga relegation candidate.
Red Devils must solve goalkeeper headache
Despite the results in Slovakian appearances, it is difficult to judge whether he fits in or not due to the short time he has spent between the posts. His lack of game time is largely due to the exceptional form of David de Gea this season. And with Dean Henderson set to return from his spell at Nottingham Forest in the summer, it’s a headache for the club as to how to solve their goalkeeping problem.
Dubravka played an important role for Newcastle before the investment from Saudi Arabia. But now they look to reinforce that spot and he has become overabundant to the requirements.
Well, looking at the situation, it can be inferred that, Dubravka is likely to depart on a permanent move from Newcastle next summer.
