Sportske Novosti have revealed that Manchester United are now ready to launch a move for Dinamo Zagreb goalkeeper, Dominik Livakovic, who has been mooted as a target for Tottenham.

Livakovic was one of the standout goalkeepers on show at last year’s World Cup and the goalkeeper has been linked with moves to several of Europe’s top clubs since his impressive showing in Qatar.

Journalist Ben Jacobs revealed on the Spurs Chat podcast back in December that Tottenham scouted the shot-stopper at the World Cup while The Daily Mail subsequently claimed that the 27-year-old was also on Chelsea’s radar.

However, if Sportske Novosti’s latest update is to be believed, Man Utd might be the club to offer Livakovic a route to the Premier League this summer.

The publication reveals that they have heard from ‘well-informed’ sources that the Red Devils have identified the Croat as the man to take over the gloves from David De Gea, with Erik Ten Hag’s men expected to meet the Dinamo star’s €10m (£8.8m) release clause.

I am not a fan of signing players on the back of their performances in major tournaments as they could have just had a purple patch.

The fact that Livakovic is still playing at the Croatian top flight at 27 years of age is not a great endorsement of his quality.
