Djordje Petrovic: Why Man Utd and Liverpool are interested in New England Revolution's latest star goalkeeper

In February 2022, the New England Revolution lost their star goalkeeper to a European giant, with Matt Turner joining Arsenal.

Just over a year on, the Revs could soon find themselves in a similar position. That's because Turner's replacement has rapidly caught the eye of Europe's biggest clubs, meaning it's only a matter of time before he moves on too.

Manchester United and Liverpool are the two most notable teams linked with Djordje Petrovic, the Revs' No.1 with No.99 on his shirt. The 23-year-old has become a legitimate star in New England, earning a nomination for MLS Goalkeeper of the Year despite only taking over as starter in May.

"When the right time comes [to think about a transfer], then we'll see."
