Goalkeeper reveals Forest interest

Braga goalkeeper Matheus says he had interest from Nottingham Forest and Manchester United last summer.

Matheus admits that he got offered a contract when United were seeking two goalkeepers last summer. United ended up signing Altay Bayindir as number two and Andre Onana as their first-choice stopper.

Matheus told O Jogo: "There was interest from Nottingham Forest last season, but the chairman thought it would be better if I stayed. There were a few that never got going. Nottingham Forest, Manchester United, Nice and some from Brazil. None were finalized because the time wasn’t right.”

Nottinghamshire Live says: The goalkeeping department at Forest has been a huge problem and needs fixing. The Reds need a stopper who is genuine Premier League quality.
