Manchester United have completed the signing of Fenerbahce goalkeeper Altay Bayindir for a fee of £4.25 million. The 23-year-old shot-stopper has joined the Premier League giants after impressing with his performances in the Turkish Super Lig.

Bayindir, who is considered one of the most promising young goalkeepers in Turkey, caught the attention of Manchester United scouts with his consistent displays for Fenerbahce. The Red Devils were in search of a reliable backup goalkeeper to provide competition for their number one, David de Gea.

The Turkish international has signed a four-year contract with Manchester United, which will keep him at the club until 2025. Bayindir expressed his excitement at joining such a prestigious club and revealed that he is looking forward to learning from De Gea and the coaching staff at Old Trafford.

The 6ft 5in goalkeeper is known for his shot-stopping abilities and commanding presence in the penalty area. He possesses good reflexes and is comfortable with the ball at his feet, making him a valuable asset for Manchester United’s style of play.

Bayindir will compete with Dean Henderson for the backup goalkeeper role at Manchester United. Henderson, who spent the previous season on loan at Sheffield United, has returned to Old Trafford and will be keen to challenge De Gea for the starting spot.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expressed his delight at securing the signing of Bayindir, stating that the young goalkeeper has all the attributes to succeed at the highest level. Solskjaer believes that the competition between Bayindir and Henderson will only benefit the team and push De Gea to maintain his high standards.

The signing of Bayindir comes as Manchester United continue to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season. The Red Devils have already secured the services of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and Raphael Varane from Real Madrid, addressing key areas of the team.

With the addition of Bayindir, Manchester United now have a strong goalkeeping department that provides depth and competition. The 23-year-old will be eager to make his mark and prove himself at one of the biggest clubs in the world.
