Manchester United fans on Twitter react to the club signing 35-year-old keeper Lee Grant

According to The Telegraph, Manchester United are set to sign 35-year-old Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant on a free transfer.

Grant will join as 3rd choice goalkeeper behind David de Gea and Sergio Romero and his capture would mean that the Portugal Under-21 stopper Joel Pereira will be allowed to go out on loan to experience first-team football.

The Englishman played just five times for Stoke last season as he deputised for Jack Butland, but impressed during the 2016/17 campaign when Butland was out injured. During that season, Grant played 28 times in the Premier League and conceded just 34 goals in a Stoke team that finished 13th.

He also put in a man-of-the-match performance at Old Trafford in October 2016 as his side held United to a 1-1 draw.

Grant has played for a number of clubs in England, including Sheffield Wednesday and Oldham. He has also had two spells at both Burnley and Derby.

While some United fans were less than impressed with the potential signing, others saw it as a sensible move for the Manchester club. Check out some of the best reactions from below…
