Picture: Player all-smiles after agreeing deal with Manchester United

Grant has become the club's third summer signing after Mourinho's side completed the transfers of 19-year-old right-back Diogo Dalot from Porto, and central midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Grant is expected to play deputy to David de Gea and Sergio Romero over the course of the 2018/19 campaign and this opportunity may allow Joel Pereira pursue a loan move elsewhere in order to gain valuable experience.

Former Derby County, Sheffield Wednesday and Burnley keeper Grant spent two seasons with Stoke and was named their Player of the Year in 2016/17, when he stepped in for the injured Jack Butland.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth believes Manchester United will edge closer to a deal for the experienced shot stopper in the summer transfer window.

The goalkeeper only made his Premier League debut in 2016 but impressed hugely against Manchester United with a performance that has evidently stuck in José Mourinho's mind.

In a statement, Stoke said: "The club would like to place on record our thanks to Lee and wish him all the best for the future".

Argentina worldwide Sergio Romero is De Gea's understudy, while Joel Perreira is now third-choice under the Portuguese head coach.

The 22-year old Portuguese is held in high regard within the club and has attracted interest from clubs in Italy and Spain.

The Spanish worldwide saw his side crash out in a shock upset to Russian Federation on penalties and had a disappointing tournament on a personal level, making just one save in four games-the fewest of any goalkeeper who has played at least three games in a World Cup since 1966.
