Lee Grant Upset As Manchester United Withdraw Contract Extension
Clarets former goalkeeper Lee Grant is unhappy as Manchester United have changed their minds over a new one year contract with the veteran keeper now set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the current season.
Lee Grant was expected to sign a new twelve month extension at Manchester United, until the Red Devils decided to withdraw their offer to the thirty-eight year old. He has made just two appearances for United since joining them from Stoke City for £1.5M in 2018.
Manchester United face another goalkeeper problem with third choice Lee Grant upset because he feels the club have reneged on the offer of a new contract. Grant expected to sign a 12-month extension but is now set to leave when his current deal runs out in June.
Although the 38-year-old keeper has only made two appearances for United since arriving from Stoke City for £1.5million in 2018, he is a popular member of the squad. Lee Grant’s time at Manchester United appears to be over once this season is finished.
United already face an issue with David de Gea this summer after their £375,000-a-week top earner lost his place to Dean Henderson. Whilst Sergio Romero has been frozen out since October when his wife publicly criticised United for blocking his transfer to Everton.
The Argentine still hopes to complete a move to Goodison Park at the end of the season, with Boca Juniors and River Plate among Romero’s other options. Grant had expected to sign a new twelve month extension and is upset at Manchester United renegading on it
