It has been one of the longest running transfer sagas of the summer, and it is still no closer to reaching a conclusion.
David De Gea has been linked with a move from Manchester United to Real Madrid for almost 12 months now, and is yet to appear for United this season with his head having been turned.
Louis van Gaal has said only yesterday he will not be selling his star goalkeeper to the 10 time European Cup winners, saying:
“I think when Manchester United wants a player he shall come, besides when a club isn’t selling.
“It is the same with us. We are not selling De Gea.”
The Spaniard does however have just one year remaining on his current deal, whilst Real Madrid boast an almost faultless record when it comes to landing their transfer targets.
With that in mind, we have identified five goalkeepers United should look to add to provide competition to summer signing Sergio Romero should De Gea complete his switch before the September 1 deadline.
