Manchester United fans are split over recently emerging transfer reports linking them to Lille shot-stopper Mike Maignan.

The French outfit have set an asking price of €35m (£31m) for the 23-year-old according to journalist Duncan Castles.

The report holds extra significance as David De Gea’s long term future at Old Trafford remains at large as the Spaniard enters the last 12 months of his contract.

De Gea’s wife Spanish pop star Edurne Garcia also mentioned that he needs to be somewhere he is ‘happy’ be it in Manchester or elsewhere.

“I’ve always said it – he decides whatever he decides.

“Wherever he is I’m always going to support him because I believe couples always have to support each other in any situation.

“The important thing is that he is happy and that wherever he is, is where he wants to be.

“I don’t live in Manchester, which has been said. How am I going to live in Manchester if I don’t stop working here?

“I’m making a series, I working on an album so I travel a lot. I come and go because David is still there and that’s how it is.”

While De Gea endured a miserable end to the season, Maignan’s rise for Ligue 1 runners up Lille has been meteoric.

His heroics have earned him a call up for Didier Deschamps’ France national squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers.

United fans have read into all the transfer reports linking Maignan to the club and they seem bitterly split.

Apart from Maignan, The Red Devils have also been linked with Ajax shot-stopper Andre Onana and Barcelona number two Jasper Cillessen.
