Imminent Manchester United signing makes bold claim to friends ahead of move

Manchester United reportedly look to be closing in on the signing of Aston Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton, and he fancies his chances of fighting for the number one spot at Old Trafford.

The veteran shot-stopper’s move to Man Utd looks to be all but done, and Sky Sports add that he’s told friends he’s coming with the ambition to become Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first choice.

“Could hardly have gone any worse…” – Solskjaer accused of bottling THIS major decision in the Europa League final

United fans will certainly hope Heaton can surprise them by doing enough to play regularly, as neither David de Gea nor Dean Henderson look ideal for the Red Devils at the moment.

De Gea got the nod over Henderson for yesterday’s Europa League final, but it seems this decision may have backfired after the Spaniard failed to save a single one of Villarreal’s eleven penalties in the shoot-out.

Henderson, meanwhile, also got a run in the team but didn’t do enough to impress, with the youngster perhaps not ready to be first choice for such a big club.

Heaton has had a fine career, albeit at a slightly lower level, but it will be interesting to see what kind of impact he can make at United once the move goes through.

    They need a goalkeeper, de Gea was atrocious last night. Went the right way once and dived to miss a penalty sent strait down the middle. After watching what their goalkeeper did with his penalty he then decides to tap the ball. Bad mistake of choice from Solskjaer.

    de Gea is not the best goalkeeper for Manchester United.
    We don’t like de Gea any more, Manchester United please.

    Are you u joking? We are here because of DDG and his heroics. Stop drinking the Sky English ” Cool Aid, narrative.
    Henderson is as good keeper, but what has he won?
    DDG is still a world class Keeper . The reason we lost was because ole failed to use substitutes and our defensive woes unable to defend against set pieces and unable to play against team with a low block… And finally ole persist with limited players like Scott Mctominay..

  4. Ihechi Nwogu says:

    A keeper that is taking £290k cannot save even one penalty.
    As for Ole, I dont havevanything to tell him
