It would seem that the acquisition of another goalkeeper was something that almost slipped under the radar.
In fact, it would seem that if the good folk of the news vehicle, the Metro, hadn’t of noticed that there was a new face training among those not away on international duty, then the new arrival might not have gotten the arrival fanfare he deserves.
The new goalkeeper on the block is Paul Woolston, a 20-year-old who has been training with the squad since being released by Newcastle United, in the summer.
It’s no secret that Manchester United were looking to add to the keeper contingent with the club having seen three – Joel Pereira, Dean Henderson and Kieran O’Hara all leaving in the summer transfer window.
Although Lee Grant was signed from Stoke City, Mourinho obviously thought there was a necessity for another keeper.
Here at Vital Manchester United, we’d like to welcome Paul to the club but whether or not he is able to get any first-team experience remains to be seen, it could take an extraordinary set of circumstances for that to happen but, we’d imagine, Paul feels like he’s hit the jackpot at the moment and that, we’d conclude, is a pretty good feeling.
