Manchester United underwhelming goalkeeper should be ready for an intense competition for a place in United’s goalkeeping department in the upcoming season.

The Spanish netminder was poor between the sticks for his country throughout their stay in Russia and that has limited his chances of getting the nod ahead Sergio Romero to man the goalpost for the Red Devils in the coming season.

However, apart from his uninspiring performances recently, De Gea now face another competitor as the Red Devils finally confirmed the signing of Stoke City’s experience goaltender Lee Grant last night.

The Red Devils have been in talks with the 35-year-old’s agent over a possible switch to Old Trafford since last week.

According to the Red Devils via their official website, Lee Grant has signed a two-year contract with the club and he could be integrated into the club’s managerial position as goalkeeper trainer by the end of his deal.

With the netminder’s signature, United have made three signings this summer having signed Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk and Diogo Dalot from Porto.

Though Lee Grant is widely considered as a third-choice goalie at the Theater of Dreams, he could be asked to replace David De Gea, should the Spaniard continue with is lacklustre display in the coming season.

Lee Grant has featured in more than 500 games in his career and he would be hoping to add to that tally at Old Trafford.

Mason Mount

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard singled out one player for praise after his team could only manage a draw against Leicester City.

Lampard led Chelsea to a 1-1 draw with Leicester City at home in the Premier League game played on Sunday evening.

After the game, Frank Lampard was full of praise for young Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount for his performance against the Foxes.

The Chelsea legend pointed out his quality while he was fielding questions from reporters at his post-match press conference.

Mason Mount has been in very good form for Chelsea since he returned to the club from his loan spell at English Championship club Derby County.

The 20-year-old midfielder played at Derby County for Frank Lampard last season as the Rams got to the Championship playoff final before being beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa who are in the Premier League as a result of that win.

Mason Mount returned to Chelsea from the Derby County loan spell and was one of the best players for the Blues during preseason.

He has continued that form into the new season after the midfielder robbed Leicester City star Wilfried Ndidi to give Chelsea a first-half lead.

Ndidi atoned for his error with a bullet header in the second half thereby earning a 1-1 draw for the Foxes.

Paolo Dybala has been told by senior Juventus officials to get a new team as he’s surplus to requirements under the managerial reign of Maurizio Sarri.

According to the aforementioned publication, PSG are ready to offer as much as €80m (£73m) but Italian champions Juventus are holding out for €100m (£91m) and it remains to be seen whether the French giants would accept the asking price from the Italians.

PSG sporting director Leonardo has had his hands full since returning to the club after six years and he wants to conclude a deal for Dybala in the next few days.
