Sir Alex Ferguson has personally recommended United move for Trapp – United In Focus – Manchester United FC News

Sir Alex Ferguson has interjected himself into Manchester United’s transfer business, reports German channel Sport1.

The legendary Manchester United manager is reported to be behind United’s pursuit of Eintracht Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp.

The Athletic report Trapp is ‘among the names being considered’ as United look for a new goalkeeper to push David de Gea.

Trapp, 32, won the Europa League with Eintracht Frankfurt last season and is a German international.

Sport1 report Sir Alex Ferguson passed on a recommendation he received, for Manchester United to look at Trapp.

The channel claim: “Ferguson was suggested by his contacts in Germany in the summer to take a closer look at Eintracht Frankfurt’s Kevin Trapp.

“And what the “Sir” got to see was quite convincing… if Ferguson believes in a player’s quality, then he will assist in a transfer. He then tries to free up the necessary funds from the Glazer family.”

For any move to be made, Erik ten Hag would have to be interested too. The new boss has driven United’s transfer policy so far this transfer window. BILD report Ten Hag is fully behind the move.

Trapp was asked about the rumours earlier this week. He was quoted by The Sun: “It’s always nice when rumours like this come out. It’s a nice acknowledgement. But I can’t say anything about it.”

He will likely be even more flattered to learn Sir Alex Ferguson has been involved in the hunt for his signature.

BILD report Eintracht Frankfurt want £21 million for Trapp, and want a deal to be concluded quickly, if at all, to allow them time to sign a replacement.

Sky claim United have made an approach for Newcastle’s Martin Dubravka, possibly put off by the asking price for Trapp.
