Of course is not a priority. One goalkeeper. And then, you will put on the bench? Because Ederson 🇧🇷 of course main goalkeeper…

Ederson is enough

No way he replaces Ederson. Quality keeper though.

We don’t need a keeper, he’s fantastic what a player but I’m happy with Eddie and I’m pretty sure he’s happy at Barça so this story seems fake af

Ederson’s top so it would be a bit of a waste
