MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly offered Eintracht Frankfurt star Kevin Trapp a £180,000-a-week contract proposal as they prepare a bid for the keeper.
The Red Devils have been eyeing a new keeper to provide competition for present No1 David De Gea.
De Gea’s had a shaky start to the season, and was responsible for two errors that led to United’s disastrous 4-0 loss to Brentford.
United also lost the Spaniard’s deputy Dean Henderson to Nottingham Forest on loan this summer.
And it’s unlikely he’ll return to Old Trafford after making a slew of disparaging remarks about his employers.
Henderson’s departure, coupled with De Gea’s tumultuous form has exacerbated the Red Devils’ need for a new keeper.
And they believe Trapp is the solution to the problem.
They reportedly placed a bid for the 32-year-old on Monday, but it seems their initial approach has been unsuccessful.
But while United structure another offer, they’ve directly tried to tempt Trapp with a £9-10million per year deal, according to Sport1.
Plus, the report claims he’ll have the chance to play regular football as De Gea’s contract ends next summer.
