Arsenal: Unai Emery tells Mikel Arteta he wants to sign ‘outstanding player’
David de Gea is under a lot of scrutiny at the moment, which is understandable given he conceded 7 goals in one match during a title race. His form for Manchester United has slowly fallen off this season, but this is to be expected given his age. Don’t get it wrong, there’s still life left in the tan – However, it might be time for Manchester United to refresh their option between the sticks.

According to the latest from Fabrizio Romano on The United Stand YouTube channel, Manchester United have been closely monitoring Diogo Costa, the current goalkeeper of Porto.
Diogo Costa is 23 years old and has a release clause of £65m (€75m). This shows how highly he’s valued at Porto, where he’s made the starting eleven in every match this season. Playing in great form, he’s one of the best penalty savers in the world, something which could be a valuable asset to United, although they won’t want to rely on this too often.
Erik ten Hag is at Manchester United for the long-run, where he wants to compete for silverware and further success. However, he can only do this if the players he has are on board – this can be fixed through a reshuffling in the transfer window.
Fabrizio Romano’s comments are NEVER to be taken with a pinch of salt. He’s one of the most reliable and trusted journalists in the game. Whether it’s breaking bad or good news, United fans are always the first to refresh his Twitter feed when on the hunt for transfer news.

And this claim isn’t hard to believe, either. Manchester United have been preparing for the day De Gea leaves for a long time now, this is not news to a lot of people.
