Dubravka was not long ago regarded as one of the better goalkeepers in the Premier League having established himself as number one at St James’ Park.
The goalkeeper had made 130 appearances for Newcastle in all competitions, keeping 37 clean sheets.
Ajax winger Antony is also due to undergo a medical at Man United on Tuesday night
United hope to complete two new signings by Tuesday night, with Ajax winger Antony on his way to a medical tonight.
United have agreed to pay £84.4million for the Brazilian after a breakthrough in talks on Sunday.
The attacker was a key target for Erik ten Hag but they struggled to agree a deal with Ajax after multiple offers were rejected before the breakthrough.
