One of the great sensations of Belgian football this season is a Dutch goalkeeper who is only 20 years old, we are talking about Bart Verbruggen. The young goalkeeper has already been called up by Ronald Koeman in his first call-up as coach of the Dutch national team.
Faced with excellent performances with the shirt of RSC Anderlecht, clubs like Manchester United and Burnley would be interested in taking Bart Verbruggen out of Belgium and taking him to England.
Current Burnley manager Vincent Kompany was keen to sign Bart Verbruggen at the start of this season, but the Burnley board and RSC Anderlecht could not reach an agreement and Bart Verbruggen continued to work in Belgium.
With a return to the Premier League guaranteed for next season, everything indicates that in the coming months Burnley will make an offer that revolves around 17 million euros to remove Bart Verbruggen from RSC Anderlecht.
Liverpool are also closely following Bart Verbruggen’s development in Belgium and would have the young goalkeeper as an ideal replacement for Alison Becker. Other information that arrived is that Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United want to count on the goalkeeper as early as next season. He would arrive to replace, in the long run, David De Gea.
The young goalkeeper has produced many outstanding performances this season and this has further strengthened interest from clubs across England in his football.
RSC Anderlecht will be looking to get as much value as possible to release Bart Verbruggen. With Hendrik van Crombrugge still at the club, RSC Anderlecht know they won’t have to spend any of the proceeds from the sale of Bart Verbruggen on signing a new goalkeeper.
