Manchester United need to strengthen the Goalkeeping department if David De Gea decides to leave in the summer, according to Shaka Hislop.
While nothing is clear as of yet, it looks increasingly likely that the Spaniard won’t be extending his current contract with the Red Devils which means we risk losing him on a free next season.
Given the financial implications that may follow if DDG exits on a free, United would like to recoup something out of him by selling him the summer, meaning we would need a replacement for the Spaniard!
The ESPN pundit Shaka Hislop has been discussing Manchester United’s trouble positions and here’s what he thinks:
“With De Gea [potentially leaving], without question [they would need to sign a goalkeeper].
“Romero’s not going to be the goalkeeper that is going to lead them back to challenging in Europe or even the top four.
“In all honesty, Manchester United need to strengthen in every single department,” he continued.
“Just kind of thinking about it loosely, I don’t think there centre-halves are great, I don’t think their wing-backs are great.
“Through midfield the only world class talent that they have is Paul Pogba and I don’t think he’s lived up to his own expectations.
“He’s been good, probably better than most, but I don’t think he’s lived up to expectation. The likes of Ander Herrera are already moved on.
“[Marcus] Rashford started well under [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer but seemed a little bit moody towards the end. [Romelu] Lukaku linked with a move away.”
Like we have already covered before, Manchester United are in a need of some serious summer rebuilding. Cutting off the dead weights is priority No.1 for the Ole’s side.
Talking about Ole, Hislop was inquired about the Norwegian and if he thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man to lead United forward?
“No”, he concluded.
So, there it is then! None of the pundits and critics are giving us or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a chance next season.
Hopefully, the players take this on their ego and get out there next season with the intention to prove the world wrong!
