Man United eyeing summer swoop for in-demand Rangers star - report

Rangers keeper Robby McCrorie could be set for a stunning switch to Manchester United this summer, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claims that new Old Trafford boss Erik Ten Hag wants to sign McCrorie with Tom Heaton and Dean Henderson both heading for the exit.

McCrorie is reportedly wanted by a host of clubs north and south of the border but the chance to join Manchester United would no doubt be hugely appealing to the Rangers Academy graduate.

United number one David de Gea could end up being the only senior keeper on the books at Old Trafford and McCrorie has been identified as a possible back-up for the Spaniard.

It isn’t the first time that the Red Devils have shown an interest in signing McCrorie, making a move to land him as a teenager before he committed his long-term future to Rangers.

Since then McCrorie has gone on to force his way into the Scotland squad and make his first-team debut for Rangers, making to appearances last season without conceding.

Man United interest could make keeping Robby McCrorie at Rangers difficult

As Allan McGregor continues to mull over his future, losing McCrorie would leave the Light Blues short in the goalkeeping department – and the lure of a move to Man United could prove hard to keep him in Scotland.

With only a year left on his Rangers deal, this would be the last chance Rangers have to cash in and potentially secure a future windfall by selling McCrorie rather than losing him for free.

If Rangers do decide to sell, they need to make sure the club stands to benefit with a sell-on clause to even if they don’t get that much initially.

However, at age 24 there’s a real need for McCrorie to get regular first-team football and that is sure to weigh heavily on his decision.

His place in the Scotland squad despite barely playing first-team football this season shows how highly he’s rated and Rangers could be left with a big decision on their hands.
