Should David de Gea leave Manchester United this summer the club will be looking for a replacement of the same calibre.
The future of De Gea is still up in the air with the goalkeeper once again left out of the Red Devil's squad for last nights 1-0 win against Aston Villa.
Real Madrid still want to take the 24-year-old to the Bernabeu, and it seems likely De Gea will move before the transfer window slams shut.

But one goalkeeper that will not be joining Manchester United, is Tottenham Hotspur's Hugo Lloris. The France number one has been linked with a move to Old Trafford throughout the summer, but Mauricio Pochettino believes Lloris is happy at White Hart Lane.
As per the Guardian, he said: “Hugo’s commitment with the club is high. We need to be happy because if Manchester United want him, it’s because he’s a great goalkeeper.
"But Hugo is happy here and he has a contract here. He is keen, one day, to play in the Champions League with Tottenham. You don’t need to convince him to stay because he has a four-year contract. It’s not a big problem.”
Along with Lloris, United have been linked with Jasper Cillessen as potential replacements for De Gea, but it appears the Spurs man will be staying put for the time being.
ROMERO IS YET TO BE TESTED
Sergio Romero has kept clean sheets in his two games as the Red Devils' keeper, but is yet to be tested thoroughly. He made some good saves against Tottenham, but had very little to do against Aston Villa.
If De Gea is to leave, it is expected United will sign a goalkeeper to replace him as the club's number one, but Romero could cement his place in the starting line-up with some strong performances.
However, as of yet we are unable to judge the ability of Romero as he has not been put under a prolonged spell of pressure, unlike De Gea at times last season.
Credit also has to be given to Man United's defence and holding midfielders for ensure Romero has had very little to do in 180 minutes of football.
