This year’s world cup is a tournament to forget for Spain national team, who failed to make it to the quarterfinal round for the second time in a row.
Going into the world cup, the Spanish team believed their goalkeeping department was strong enough, considering the fact that United’s netminder David De was in top form.
However, things didn’t work out as thought by the La Rojas who conceded three goals in their first group match against Portugal, no thanks to an uncharacteristic error from David De Gea.
Things went from bad to worse for the goalie as he failed to perform up to fans expectations in the second match.
His form was uninspiring throughout the tournament and they were surprisingly defeated by Russia night ago through penalty shootout.
Having seen his first-choice goalkeeper’s dismal performances, Manchester United manager José Mourinho is now set to complete his move for Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant this week, that’s according to reports from the Britannia Stadium.
Though this report came as a surprise to many pundits, the 35-year-old netminder is set to have his medicals today at Old Trafford while he would be officially unveiled by the Red Devils on Tuesday (Tomorrow)
It is understood that Lee Grant won’t be given a permanent spot in Mourinho’s starting lineup next season, but his presence in the squad will help De Gea and Sergio Romero improve their overall capacity to keep out shots from oppositions.
