According to a report from Manchester Evening News, Manchester United are showing keen interest in David Raya of Brentford. The Spanish shot-stopper has been rumoured to be on Erik ten Hag’s wishlist for this summer. United’s search for a goalkeeper comes after the disappointing defeat to West Ham, which resulted from David De Gea’s error. United’s number 1 might have to step down next season, considering he’s taken a considerable pay cut even though he’s signed a new contract at Old Trafford.

David Raya: Early Life

David Raya is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Brentford in the English Premier League. He was born on September 15, 1995, in Sabadell, Spain.

Raya began his youth career at UE Rapitenca before moving to Cornella in 2008. After a few years at Cornella, he joined FC Barcelona’s youth academy, La Masia, in 2011. However, Raya left Barcelona in 2012 and joined Blackburn Rovers’ academy in England.

Raya made his professional debut for Blackburn Rovers in 2015 and made over 100 appearances for the club before joining Brentford in 2019. Since joining Brentford, Raya has established himself as one of the top goalkeepers in the Championship and played a crucial role in Brentford’s promotion to the Premier League in the 2020/2021 season.

Should Ten Hag Bring Him To Manchester United?

Raya is known for his excellent reflexes, shot-stopping ability, and command of the penalty area. He is also an excellent distributor of the ball and has been praised for his accurate and efficient distribution, which is an essential part of Brentford’s possession-based style of play. Additionally, he is comfortable with the ball at his feet and is not afraid to leave his penalty area to play as a sweeper-keeper.

Overall, Raya is a talented and versatile goalkeeper who has demonstrated his ability to adapt to different play styles. This makes a decent fit for Ten Hag‘s requirements at Old Trafford. His performances for Brentford have earned him a reputation as one of the best young goalkeepers in English football. He will undoubtedly be looking to significantly impact the Premier League for many years if he joins the Red Devils this summer.
