David Raya set for Bees exit?

Brentford goalkeeper David Raya could leave the Bees this summer, as the goalkeeper attracts interest from Premier League rivals Manchester United and Tottenham. Raya has been in form this campaign, with the 27-year-old showing that he could make the next step up in his career.

David Raya is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Brentford in the English Premier League. Born on September 15, 1995, in Barcelona, he began his youth career with the famed La Masia academy at FC Barcelona. However, he later moved to the English club Blackburn Rovers in 2012, where he progressed through the ranks of the youth academy before making his professional debut for the club in 2015.

After impressing at Blackburn Rovers, Raya signed for Brentford in 2019 and has since established himself as the team's first-choice goalkeeper. Known for his excellent reflexes, shot-stopping ability, and commanding presence in the penalty area, Raya has been a key player for Brentford in their recent success, including their promotion to the Premier League for the first time in the club's history. 

Manager Thomas Frank even went so far as to confirm his asking price for the player.

"There is no doubt that David (Raya) is a case where there is one year left and we will see what will happen. We're very happy with David here," Frank said.

"Everyone knows he is a £40m-plus goalkeeper if anyone is interested and we are prepared just like in any position.

"There is a possibility he'll leave this summer maybe, for the right price, and if that happens then of course we need to be prepared."
