Manchester United is reportedly considering a move for Anderlecht goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen as they potentially look to replace David de Gea as their number one. De Gea has faced renewed scrutiny in recent weeks due to some costly errors that threaten Man Utd‘s chances of a top-four Premier League finish and qualification for next season’s Champions League. While Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, Man Utd may be exploring other options. The 20-year-old Verbruggen, who made his Anderlecht debut at the age of 18 under Vincent Kompany, has attracted the interest of Man Utd, according to Manchester Evening News. He received his first senior Netherlands call-up last month and has made the Anderlecht number one spot his own this season.

A suitable successor to De Gea?

Bart Verbruggen, with his strong possession skills and reputation as a sweeper-keeper, would potentially be a suitable successor to David de Gea as Manchester United‘s number one goalkeeper. De Gea‘s deficiencies in possession have been exposed multiple times this season, most recently in their defeat to West Ham, where he let in a seemingly harmless shot from Said Benrahma. Despite his poor campaign, Man Utd is reportedly keen to extend De Gea’s contract, which runs until 2025. However, the club may need to consider a replacement soon if they want to address their ongoing issues in goal. Verbruggen, who has made the Anderlecht number one spot his own this season, could be a viable option for Man Utd.

Verbruggen has made 31 appearances for Anderlecht
