Manchester United to sell De Gea and get new keeper at the end of the season

Manchester United are set to drop legendary goal keeper David De Gea this summer. Credible sources say that United are targeting Aston Villa's Emiliano Martinez. Currently, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opted to have Dean Henderson as the number 1 keeper for United. Henderson has also been named in the England's World Cup qualifiers squad.

De Gea's current contract ends in 2023 but Solskjaer has been concerned of the Spaniard's rocky form recently prompting him to look for a replacement. The 30 year old has made several costly blunders in recent past. De Gea has been United's number one keeper for about 10 years, leaving behind a great legacy. He joined United in 2011 and has so far made 337 appearances at club level. Solskjaer is keen on getting a solid goal keeping partner for the young and promising Dean Henderson.

Emiliano Martinez is in top form having kept 14 clean sheets in the Premier League this season so far.
