Manchester United are plotting a move for Dinamo Zagreb goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic, according to Sportske Novosti.
The Croatian newspaper claims that the Red Devils will consider triggering the 28-year-old’s release clause, which currently stands at a modest €10m (£8.85m).
Livakovic played every minute of Croatia’s run to the World Cup semi-final last year, and he put on the gloves for the third-place playoff against Morocco too.
The shot-stopper has spent the last seven years with Dinamo Zagreb, and he is their captain, but he could now be set for a move away from his homeland.
Sporske Novosti report that United are “ready to pay” the buyout fee which is “not an obstacle” for them, and he could become the first Croatian to play for the Red Devils’ first team.
With Jack Butland leaving when his loan expires in the summer, and with Dean Henderson also expected to be sold, some competition for David De Gea will be required if the Spaniard remains at Old Trafford. It appears Livakovic will be that keeper.
