Gary Neville urges Man Utd to sign new goalkeeper to replace David De Gea

Manchester United have to sign a new goalkeeper if they want to win the league according to Gary Neville who has doubts over David De Gea nowadays.

The Red Devils threatened to challenge for the title this term but have fallen away in recent weeks.

Several elements of their team need to be addressed before they can be considered genuine contenders.

Question marks have existed over De Gea for several years now as errors become an increasingly regular part of his game.

Neville has underlined the need to have a top quality goalkeeper in order to push for the title.

Dean Henderson is tipped for big things, but the player turned pundit is not convinced he is the answer and instead believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to dip into the market.

“Your goalkeeper, to win a league, has got to be exceptional,” Neville told Webby and O’Neill.

“I said three or four years ago at the time, Jurgen Klopp took me on publicly, but you’re not going to win a league with [former Liverpool goalkeepers Loris] Karius and [Simon] Mignolet.

“That’s not to say they’re not good goalkeepers, or decent goalkeepers, but which team do you know that wins a league…there might be the odd one, but they usually have great goalkeepers, or goalkeepers that have had a great season.

“Ederson is a great goalkeeper, Petr Cech, Schmeichel, Van der Sar, even Kasper Schmeichel for Leicester, David Seaman, Alisson, you’ve got to have a great goalkeeper.

“We’ve got to start asking questions about David De Gea because the mistakes are coming more regularly now and they cost points.

“The game winning saves, the one-on-one saves are coming less, in my opinion. I think that has to be a question that Ole has to answer.

“Then there’s the question of Henderson, are we saying that Henderson is going to be the number one for Manchester United?

“Honestly, if you want to win the league…If Pep Guardiola or Klopp came into Man Utd, they’d bring a new goalkeeper in.”
