Football Insider says United are set to undertake a major overhaul of their goalkeeping department this summer. Sergio Romero, 34, is out of contract this summer and is almost certain to leave on a free. But United have also finally decided to call time on David De Gea’s long spell at the club. His form has been rocky with United considering replacing him with Dean Henderson. United, though, are not pinning all their hopes on Henderson being their No1 for the future. The club are reportedly eyeing up moves for TWO goalkeepers to replace De Gea and Romero. And top of that list is Aston Villa’s former Arsenal stopper Martinez – who has kept 14 clean sheets in 27 Premier League games this term.”
