Manchester United are on the verge of completing a shock deal to sign veteran goakeeper Lee Grant from relegated club Stoke City, as per reports from the Mirror.

If Shaqiri did complete a move to Liverpool in the next couple days, it would tie in perfectly with what the Switzerland worldwide said on Thursday: "I want to stay in the Premier League, and you will find out my new club soon".

Former Derby County, Sheffield Wednesday and Burnley keeper Grant spent two seasons with Stoke and was named their Player of the Year in 2016/17, when he stepped in for the injured Jack Butland.

Earlier, had reported how 35-year-old goalkeeper Lee Grant emerged as a summer transfer target for Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho.

Walker said that if it comes down to the vice president casting a tie-breaking vote, he thinks it could tear the country apart. Besides, they said, because Trump said he was protecting national security, that concern overrode the establishment clause.

Mourinho has previously heaped praise on the Portuguese by stating that he is one of his country's best goalkeepers of the present generation and Pereira is now due to be granted his wish to enjoy a full season of competitive action. However, his chances in the first-team are likely to be limited, with De Gea and Romero ahead in the pecking order.

Finally, Juventus left-back Alex Sandro has agreed to join United in a deal worth £53m, says the Daily Star. Bringing in Grant will allow Pereira to move away on a temporary spell and gain some valuable first-team experience elsewhere.

Liverpool have also been linked with the 26-year-old who has previously had spells with Bayern Munich and Inter Milan as he is available for just £12m and has shone at this summer's World Cup, scoring a late victor in Switzerland's 2-1 win over Serbia in the group stage.
