‘What a trash signing this would be’: Man United fans slam the move for Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka… as they hit out at the ‘clueless clowns’ at the club who have returned to the ‘bargain bin’ after the win over Liverpool
- Newcastle’s Martin Dubravka has been linked with a move to Manchester United
- United boss Erik ten Hag wants a keeper to compete with Spaniard David de Gea
- But Man United fans aren’t happy with news linking the Slovakian with a move
- Dubravka, 33, has made 127 Premier League appearances for Newcastle
Manchester United fans have again voiced their frustrations at the club’s transfer policy after it emerged that the Premier League giants are attempting to bring Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka to Old Trafford.
United boss Erik ten Hag was keen to bring Frankfurt shot-stopper Kevin Trapp to Manchester this summer but saw those attempts turned down with the keeper instead opting to stay in Germany.
Attention therefore has turned to Dubravka as Ten Hag attempts to add a keeper to his squad and rival current number one David de Gea, despite letting Dean Henderson leave on loan with Nottingham Forest.

The 33-year-old missed Newcastle’s Carabao Cup tie at Tranmere on Wednesday with the official word from the club insisting that Dubravka was ill.
The Magpies may be willing to let their keeper leave after Nick Pope cemented his place in Eddie Howe’s side after his summer move. But some Man United supporters aren’t pleased at the thought of the goalkeeper making his way to Manchester.

The club’s transfer strategy has been slammed by fans during the window with United chiefs securing just three signings since Ten Hag took over and have appeared to flip-flop between targets as they make a mad scramble to add late reinforcements to their struggling side.
Frustrated fans of the fabled club have headed online to make their feelings heard, with some blasting officials as being ‘clueless clowns’.

Another fan suggested that the club have been linked with some ‘incredible goalkeepers’ during the transfer window as De Gea’s position in goal becomes under threat, but further went on to add ‘not in a good way’ after Dubravka was linked with a move.
A 2-1 home win over arch rivals Liverpool on Monday evening lifted the mood around Old Trafford after a dismal start to the new Premier League season. But this has only allowed the club to head ‘back into the bargain bin’ for players suggested another critic.
