Manchester United allegedly identify Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny as a potential summer transfer target.

Manchester United may reportedly move for Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny during the summer transfer window.

Throughout 2022-23, United boss Erik ten Hag has been well stocked for options between the sticks, with David de Gea the undisputed number and Martin Dubravka, Jack Butland and Tom Heaton providing backup.

However, as well as the latter trio having either left or not being considered as a future number one, United face a period of uncertainty regarding De Gea.

The Spaniard is known to be out of contract this summer and, while praise has often been given to the long-serving stopper, Ten Hag has refused to guarantee that he will stay as first choice for next season.

While fresh terms at a reduced wage are on the table, it remains unclear whether De Gea will choose to extend his association with the Red Devils or move elsewhere.

United also stand to be further depleted in that area of the pitch through the expected sale of Dean Henderson, and two new experienced goalkeepers may be required before the start of the next campaign.

According to TuttoJuve, United are considering whether to take an opportunity to sign Szczesny.

The report claims that the former Arsenal goalkeeper is available for a fee in the region of £8.5m, a figure that will be deemed value for money by any club searching for a fresh face in that area over the coming months.

Although the 33-year-old still has two years left on his contract, Juventus allegedly need to sell players to balance the books during the off-season.

Failing to qualify for the Champions League has contributed to that situation, with Massimiliano Allegri's team instead only due to feature in the Europa Conference League.

The Poland international has been in Italian football since 2015, initially making 81 appearances for Roma before going on to feature on 217 occasions for Juventus.

Szczesny played 28 games in Serie A this campaign, the other 10 coming from Mattia Perin who may be perceived to be a ready-made replacement if Szczesny departs Turin.

Chelsea are also said to be monitoring the situation at a time when at least one of Kepa Arrizabalaga or Edouard Mendy will leave Stamford Bridge.
