Medical complete, Manchester United set to announce sixth summer signing imminently

Premier League star has completed his medical with Manchester United, reports Fabrizio Romano.

Martin Dubravka will sign the paperwork for his loan move and the deal could be announced today.

Manchester United announced Antony’s transfer from Ajax at 1pm on Monday, a transfer BBC Sport report costs an initial £81.3 million.

Martin Dubravka will become the club’s sixth summer signing, following Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro, and Antony.

Dubravka is the exception as he arrives on loan, rather than this being a permanent move. United will have an option to buy, as part of the agreement.

Dubravka success is down to him

Dubravka will begin his spell at Manchester United as second choice goalkeeper behind David de Gea.

The good news for him is that this will likely allow him to be rotated in for Europa League games, along with November’s Carabao Cup tie with Aston Villa.

From there, it’s down to Dubravka. Manchester United will give him these games as a platform to show his quality, and from this point, manager Erik ten Hag will assess him.

Dubravka has to demonstrate he is a better fit for Ten Hag’s style of play than De Gea. If he can do so, he may get opportunities in the Premier League, especially in the second half of the season.

Ten Hag has already shown he is not afraid to make tough decisions, dropping captain Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo. De Gea now also has no guarantees.
