“The opportunity to join Manchester United is a dream come true,” Bishop said. “This club has a great record of developing goalkeepers and I cannot wait to work with the coaches here to improve every single day.”
Bishop joins a crowded room of goalkeeping talent, featuring David De Gea and Sergio Romero with Dean Henderson impressing on loan at Sheffield United. He may yet get a chance in future cup matches, but for now he’ll continue to perfect his craft with some of the best in the world.
