According to reports, former Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is keen on joining Newcastle United.
The Magpies want the former United shot-stopper, after their No.1 Nick Pope suffered a dislocated shoulder in the 1-0 win over Erik ten Hag’s side on Saturday.
31-year-old Pope will need to undergo surgery and is likely to be ruled out for at least four months, and Newcastle are in the search for a replacement.
Martin Dubravka came onto replace Pope late on against United with Loris Karius also in reserve. But Newcastle are also strongly considering bringing in De Gea.
The Spaniard is without a club after he was released by United after 12 years at Old Trafford in the summer.
Manchester Unite fans are unhappy that De Gea will be moving to a top four rival, as his replacement Andre Onana continue to struggle at Old Trafford.
