Manchester United are reportedly considering a move for Fenerbahce goalkeeper Altay Bayindir as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season.
The 25-year-old Turkey international has caught the attention of United’s staff, who held talks over his potential signing last week.
Bayindir has been a regular fixture in the Fenerbahce team since joining from Ankaragucu in 2019.
He has made 53 appearances for the Turkish club, including 32 in the Super Lig last season. His performances have not gone unnoticed, with Dutch giants Ajax also said to be interested in signing him.
United have already signed Andre Onana from Ajax this summer, but with Dean Henderson set to join Nottingham Forest on loan and Tom Heaton likely to leave for Luton Town, they are in the market for another goalkeeper. Bayindir is seen as a potential option, and would reportedly cost around £5m.
The question for Bayindir would be whether he can get more regular football elsewhere, as Fenerbahce are said to be expecting his departure.
The Turkish club have been discussing a move for Croatia number one Dominik Livakovic, which could pave the way for Bayindir to leave.
United are also said to be interested in signing Japan international goalkeeper Zion Suzuki from Urawa Reds.
The 23-year-old has been a regular for the Japanese club since making his debut in 2018, and has also represented his country at under-23 level.
Meanwhile, United winger Anthony Elanga is said to be in Nottingham ahead of a medical with Forest today, while midfielder Fred is reportedly talking to a number of clubs about a potential move.
Donny van de Beek is also said to be considering his options, as he looks to secure regular first-team football.
United are also expected to make changes to their scouting structure at youth level in the coming weeks, as they look to build for the future.
The club is set to confirm the signing of Darren Fletcher’s twin sons Jack and Tyler for a fee of £1.25m, while Harrison Parker’s move from United to City for a similar amount is likely to be completed next month.
