Revealed: 52% of Man United fans wouldn’t back Ederson swoop

David De Gea’s recent absence from the starting XI has created doubts over his future at Old Trafford, whilst Spanish outlet Diario Gol claim his long-awaited move to Real Madrid is now all-but official.

Inevitably, Manchester United will need to sign a replacement for the PFA Team of the Year member this summer and recent reports from Mirror Football suggest the Red Devils are already lining one up in the form of Benfica goalkeeper Ederson.

The Brazilian has come to the end of a fantastic season, notching up 17 clean sheets and conceding just twelve goals from 27 league outings – a staggering to return for a 23-year-old.

The only problem, however, is that Manchester City are also reportedly eyeing the South American shot-stopper, with their goalkeeping problems well known.

So we asked United fans last week whether their club needed to beat City to Ederson’s signature but according to our poll, 52% of Red Devils supporters wouldn’t back a summer transfer swoop for the Benfica ace.

United supporters seemingly hope De Gea’s heir will be sourced from elsewhere.
