Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea future at the club is up in the air and has been continuously linked with a return to Spain with Real Madrid intensifying their efforts to sign him in the summer.

There are rumours also flying about that the Spaniard’s girlfriend is already house hunting in the Spanish capital and Man United are reportedly ready to do business with the La Liga giants if they could meet their valuation of £66 million for the former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper who has two years remaining on his current contract..

Man United are also believed to be on the look out for a replacement and are reportedly scouting in the Serie A, but it appears that we already have someone who can step into De Gea’s shoes. Sergio Romero is not a regular at United and has been limited to the Europa League this season.

However, the Argentine goalie performances have proved him worthy to step up as our first choice keeper. He has been impressive in the matches he has featured so far this season.

In the Europa League Romero has played seven matches and has kept six clean sheets, conceding just one goal in the competition. De Gea made three appearances in the same competition and conceded in every game, losing two of them.

Romero made his first Premier League appearance of the season against Sunderland on Sunday and kept a clean as United won the match 3-0. In total he has kept 9 clean sheets in 12 games, conceding just three goals this season.

Romero was signed by Louis van Gaal in 2015 on a free transfer with a three-year contract with an option of extending it. In the former the former Racing Club, Monaco, Sampdoria and AZ Alkmaar keeper lays an amiable goalie United can rely, even though he is already 30.
