Altay Bayindir held his medical in Athens, Greece with Manchester United staff before returning to Istanbul on Tuesday afternoon.

If the medical assessments are favourable, The Athletic suggests that a reasonable amount slightly above £4 million might be enough to clinch the deal for the player.

Standing tall at 6ft 6in, Bayindir is renowned for his exceptional shot-blocking abilities and a dominant aerial game. In his 145 outings for Fenerbahce, he’s let in 162 goals but has also recorded 44 clean sheets.

Though there’s a debate about whether he’d be the top pick for the primary goalkeeping spot at Old Trafford, he certainly appears to be a solid backup option with Dean Henderson’s future still looking to be away from Manchester.

Acquiring Altay Bayindir for around £4 million could prove to be a savvy investment for Manchester United this transfer window.
