Three Potential goalkeeper replacements for David De Gea

Published Add your comment

With reports suggesting the possible exit of Manchester United's first choice shotstopper David De Gea this summer, The Red Devils are in search of a goalkeeper with similar or even better qualities between the sticks. While the Spaniard's future hangs on the balance, here are some of the candidates who could possible succeed him, should he not sign a new contract.

Victor Valdes

The former Barcelona goalkeeper signed for United last year, but the three-time Champions League winner has had to overcome a frustrating time on the bench after recovering from a serious injury.

However, the light at the end of the tunnel came, as the Spanish international made his first competitive appearance for the club against old foes Arsenal. So the future looks bright for Valdes, if his fellow Spaniard does leave, he would be a top choice as he has plenty of experience.

Samir Handanovic

Handanovic, whose contract at Internazionale is set to run out at the end of next year has won over Inter fans with his consistent top performances, and is said to be a Manchester United target as the club have made an enquiry for the player. The Slovenian who is exceptional at saving penalties, is ideal for the 13-times Premier League champions.

Currently at an under achieving side, the promise of Champions League football should prove enough to lure him to Old Trafford.

Hugo Lloris

Currently playing for United's Premier League rivals Tottenham, Lloris has been entertaining English fans for the last four years, and has been eyed by the Red Devils as the potential future man between the posts in Manchester. However, this could prove to be a difficult transfer, as Tottenham have declined London rivals Arsenal in the past.
