As far as transfer rumours go, Manchester United’s seem to have been multiplying by the day here in the Football Transfer Tavern with intense speculation now suggesting the Red Devils aren’t finished with strengthening the goalkeeping department.
As recently as this week, United swooped to sign free agent and Argentine number one Sergio Romero but according to publications such as Metro, they suggest Ajax’s Jasper Cillessen has already told team-mates he’s Old Trafford bound this summer.
Something of a goalkeeping merry-go-round has and potentially will continue taking place this summer with David De Gea much fancied to be joining Real Madrid.
Our Red Devils fans in the tavern thought a swoop was off however when Los Blancos swooped to sign Kiko Casilla from Espanyol, not to mention making Keylor Navas their new number one.
Despite this, De Gea is still being linked with a Bernabeu switch which would suggest Sergio Romero has been brought in as Victor Valdes’ replacement with the former Barcelona stopper irking Louis van Gaal by refusing to play in a recent reserves fixture.
You don’t usually see elite clubs swapping two keepers for two more so often but that’s exactly what could be on the cards this summer with Cillessen being lined up as somebody who like Romero, has previously worked under van Gaal before.
If all of this wasn’t confusing enough, Cillessen is actually suffering from a calf injury at present and given this is the case, perhaps De Gea may have to remain after all.
Taking a break from the goalkeeping situation at the moment, we’re devising a list of five United targets who could be following Cillessen into Old Trafford in the remainder of the summer transfer window.
