Spurs lead Man United in race for Brentford ‘keeper Raya

Tottenham are leading Manchester United in the race to sign David Raya and are close to agreeing personal terms with the Brentford goalkeeper.

Spurs are keen on a deal to sign Raya as the club look to sign a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris and are understood to be nearing an agreement on personal terms with the Spanish shot-stopper.


Fabrizio Romano is reporting that the north Londoners have held positive talks with Raya over a long-term deal and the goalkeeper is keen on the move, but Spurs have yet to agree a fee with Brentford.

Spurs consider Raya’s current £40m valuation too high considered the 27-year-old has just a year remaining on his contract with the Bees.

News of Spurs’ progress over a deal will come as a blow to Manchester United, who had reportedly considered Raya as a replacement for David de Gea.

The Spain international has impressed since Brentford’s promotion to the Premier League and led the division for saves and save percentage in 2022/23 as Thomas Frank’s side finished ninth in the table.

Brentford have already prepared for his departure with the signing of goalkeeper Mark Flekken from Freiburg.
