United could make audacious swoop for surprise English star after “contract delay”

Erik ten Hag’s desire to mould his Manchester United team in his own image is well underway with quite a few changes having taken place after their summer splurge.

The defence has been transformed thanks to the arrival of Lisandro Martinez from Ajax while Casemiro and Christian Eriksen have proved to be revelations in midfield.

While consternations remain over the lack of firepower up top, it is between the sticks that Ten Hag is most worried about for the long-term future of the club.

GK conundrum at United

David de Gea has been an exceptional servant to the club during his decade-long stay but while his shot-stopping remains superlative, it is in other areas that he continues to lack.

Modern goalkeepers all are required to be comfortable with the ball at their feet and have the ability to play as a sweeper-keeper when required.

For far too long, De Gea’s weakness while playing out from the back and his tendency to remain rooted to the spot has held back the Red Devils.
