Lee Grant close to joining Manchester United from Stoke

The 35-year-old shotstopper becomes the third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Fred and Diogo Dalot.

Coincidentally, Grant was in goal for Stoke when Wayne Rooney scored his record-breaking 250th goal for Manchester United in January 2017, denying the Potters three points and a clean sheet.

United also bade farewell to Sam Johnstone this week after the 25-year-old completed a £6.5 million switch to West Bromwich Albion.

Jose Mourinho has completed his third signing of the summer, as Stoke's Lee Grant has joined the Red Devils as a third-choice goalkeeper.

The defendants then allegedly demanded either $10,000 or $20,000 in ransom for Capone to be released, according to the indictment. According to the official news release , McCrackin was able to escape and alert police after being driven back to her home.

Xherdan Shaqiri, who is believed to be close to a move to Liverpool, has returned from the World Cup in Russian Federation, leading many to suggest he has either undergone a medical or will do so on Thursday. "It was just one of those injuries, hence no worries with the medical".

The midfielder has been linked with a move to Anfield for virtually the entirety of summer but it seems Manchester United are keen to try and attract the midfielder to themselves, rather than their bitter rivals.

"I've enjoyed every moment of my career so far and I'm now ready to continue learning and improving alongside some of the best players in the game".

He is not expected to feature often, but has been signed in an nearly advisory role, providing quality backup as well as being an inspiration to the academy goalies. Grant is a shot-stopper known for his reflexes, ability to command his area as well as his capability in dealing with aerial balls. He moved to Derby County as a trainee in 2000 and made his debut for the Rams in 2002.
