Published Add your comment

Manchester United have taken 15-year-old Polish goalkeeper Thomas Kucz on loan according to the Mirror.

The youngster is said to be highly-rated amongst those in the know and has been tracked by a number of top clubs from across Europe.


According to the Mirror, Manchester United have handed the talented youngster a week long trial in order to prove his worth, with a chance of earning a permanent deal if he does indeed impress.

He’s currently on the books of Polonia Warsaw and was invited to spend time with both Liverpool and Rangers last year.


Manchester United’s goalkeeper battle has become headline news in recent months, with new arrival Victor Valdes pushing for first team action. He penned an 18-month contract at Old Trafford back in the January window but is yet to make a Premier League appearance with David de Gea standing in his way.

The Spaniard has been in exceptional form this season but his contract expires in less than 18 months and so far he’s yet to commit his future to the club. There has been reports of interest from Real Madrid although Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal insists the former Atletico Madrid man’s future is in the Premier League.


“I think there is no problem for (De Gea) to sign," he said. "When you are a (regular) player, then probably you are the best, and then the manager is very happy that a player that is fixed in the line-up will stay."

"Nobody is happy to be No 2 and he [Valdes] has to have ambition to beat David De Gea - but it shall be very hard for him. David de Gea has developed himself in the six months that I've been here very much. I'm very pleased with his development."


The longer time goes on the more that Manchester United should be worried about the future of David de Gea.

The Spaniard is emerging as one of the world’s premier goalkeepers, and if his plan is to assess his future in the summer then the Red Devils could be in trouble - especially if they don’t make the top four.

Will David de Gea still be at Manchester United next season?
