Rangers interested in on-loan Manchester United goalkeeper Jack Butland – Man United News And Transfer News


Rangers are interested in Manchester United goalkeeper Jack Butland, who is on loan from Crystal Palace.

He is now on a temporary deal from Crystal Palace after Martin Dubravka finished his loan and returned to Newcastle United.

The goalkeeper will leave his parent club on a free transfer at the end of the season unless he extends his stay by the end of June.

Upon his arrival in Manchester, it was speculated that the club could seize him on a free transfer.

However, this does not seem to be the case as it is used as a third choice rather than Dubravka for backup options.

Football Transfer Tavern reports via Football Insider that Rangers are indeed planning a move to Butland.

He’s been on the shortlist for options for some time now and is rumored to be the perfect option for the summer.

He has made 87 Premier League appearances for both Crystal Palace and Stoke City.

The former England international is much younger than the club’s current options of Alan McGregor, 41, and John McLaughlin, 35.

It would be a great move for Butland, who had easily become the Scottish club’s starting goalkeeper.

The 29-year-old must be hoping to find a club where he can become a regular starter after three years as a backup option at Crystal Palace.

Eric ten Hag is set to overhaul his goalkeeper options this summer as David De Gea nears the final month of his contract.

Dean Henderson could return to the frame, but he’s also expected to leave this summer.

It remains to be seen if Tom Heaton will be retained as a backup option for next season or if the club will let him go.
