Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is expected to stay at Old Trafford if Jose Mourinho replaces Louis van Gaal at the helm this summer. 

This has been reported by the Telegraph, who claim that the Spanish international could leave the club if Dutchman Van Gaal stays in charge ahead of the 2016/17 campaign. 

De Gea, of course, is recognised as the club's leading player and has secured United's past three consecutive Player of the Year awards.

Once again this term, despite the club's failure to secure a place in the Champions League, the shot-stopper has been in tremendous form. 

It was well documented last summer that Spanish giants Real Madrid came to within minutes of securing his signature, but United fans will be hoping that he snubs this if they come calling once again. 

Change of manager

It appears, then, that so much depends on who will be sitting in the dugout next term. Van Gaal is under pressure following the club's failure in the Premier League, but he could yet lead the Red Devils to FA Cup glory against Crystal Palace on Saturday. 

It's far from certain, however, as to whether he will remain in the job even if the club claim FA Cup silverware. 

Mourinho, who departed Chelsea before the turn of the year, has long been linked to the United job and would prove a huge coup for the club.

The Portuguese tactician endured a tricky period at Chelsea, but he's still recognised as one of the leading forwards in world football. 

Ibrahimovic arriving 

And if the self-proclaimed Special One arrives then it appears that enigmatic Sweden captain could follow him to the club. 

Ibrahimovic, who played his final game for PSG this past weekend, may well be approaching the latter stages of his career - he is 34-years-old - but he's still recognised as one of the best strikers in world football.

Recent reports had indicated that the club had offered him a one-year deal, but his agent, Mino Raiola, swiftly denied the claims. 

"In this world we have to accept some journalists use their imagination and make things up," said Raiola, as per Sky Sports. "The story is not factual."
