MANCHESTER UNITED are lining-up a free transfer for Yann Sommer, according to reports.
The Borussia Mönchengladbach goalkeeper is in the final year of his deal and is able to move for free in the summer.
He’s also able to sign a pre-contract from January.
The Spanish stopper has been at Old Trafford for over a decade and has experienced patchy form during periods of his long stay.
In contrast Sommer started Switzerland’s first two games before missing their last match with illness.
The 33-year-old has been at Mönchengladbach since 2014 and impressed with his performances.
He previously spent seven years in the first-team of FC Basel.
Reports have suggested Man United have been trying to find a de Gea replacement for months.
