Newcastle United to offer Karl Darlow to Manchester United

A big update has emerged on Newcastle United and their plans for Karl Darlow heading into the summer transfer window… 

What’s the talk?

According to The Sun, the Magpies are set to offer the shot-stopper to Manchester United in an attempt to land Dean Henderson ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The report claims that the Red Devils are in need of an experienced goalkeeper to replace Lee Grant – who has retired – and Darlow could fit the bill for Erik ten Hag.

Huge Eddie Howe masterclass

The Newcastle boss can seal a huge masterclass by negotiating a deal to offload the ex-Nottingham Forest man to Old Trafford whilst also securing a loan/permanent move for Henderson.

Axing Darlow would be an excellent piece of business by the club as he proved, this season, that he is not good enough to provide serious competition to Martin Dubravka.

Should Karl Darlow be sold this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Toon legend Alan Shearer claimed that the £30k-per-week shot-stopper looked “nervous” between the sticks for the Magpies against Brentford this season and that was a theme throughout the early parts of the Premier League campaign.

He was called upon in eight games under Steve Bruce and struggled badly as he conceded 1.9 goals per match in that time. The 31-year-old averaged a dismal SofaScore rating of 6.47 and made one error directly leading to a goal as well as giving away one penalty as he made himself a liability to the team.

Therefore, selling him to Manchester United – given the season he had – would be an incredible move by Howe and Newcastle, before you factor in the possibility of it helping them land Henderson as part of the deal.

Who cost Newcastle the most?

The report claims that the Magpies want the England international in to replace Dubravka and his form in the Premier League in previous years suggests he has the potential to be a superb signing.

In his two top-flight campaigns, Henderson has averaged a SofaScore rating of 6.94 or higher and kept 17 clean sheets in 49 games. The Slovakian number one, meanwhile, has averaged a score of 6.88 this term for Newcastle and kept eight clean sheets in 27 outings.

He is eight years older than the Red Devils stopper and this means that the former Sheffield United loanee can come in as a long-term option for Howe between the sticks. This is another reason why this swap deal, in whatever way it materialises, would be a masterclass by the head coach.

AND in other news, PIF could sign Newcastle’s answer to Haaland in “sensational” £60m “monster”…
