Man United In Talks To Sell Promising Keeper For £2.5m




Manchester United are prepared to cash out on promising goalkeeper Sam Johnstone to Middlesbrough for £2.5 million, according to reports.

The 24-year-old has shown promising signs of becoming one of the solid shot-stoppers in the near future but has fallen down the pecking order at United, with reports that he wants to leave in search of first-team football this summer.

Having spent last season on loan at Aston Villa, Johnstone is keen on moving away from the Old Trafford in a bid to get better opportunities elsewhere.

Reports in The Sun claim that Manchester United are in talks with Middlesbrough over the sale of Johnstone for a reported £2.5 million.

Boro new boss, Gary Monk is believed to be keen on adding a new face in between the sticks this summer after losing the duo of Victor Valdes and Brad Guzan.

The United keeper has some experience playing in the lower tier of English league and will fancy a move to Middlesbrough where he is assured a number one spot.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is open to the idea of losing Johnstone for the right money as they have more options at the goalkeeping role.

The likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Southampton, Leicester City, Stoke City have also been credited with an interest in Sam Johnstone but United will be glad to allow him to leave for a Championship side.
