Roy Keane tells Manchester United what to do with David de Gea

Solskjaer warns Man Utd strike trio to improve or be replaced ...

Roy Keane has urged Manchester United to make a change in their goalkeeping department by securing a replacement for David de Gea in the summer transfer window.

The 29-year-old Spain international has attracted criticism over the course of the season for making a number of mistakes and United legend Keane has been outspoken in his views in recent months.

De Gea retained his spot between the sticks for United for the final match of the Premier League season against Leicester City, with Keane unsurprised as he retains the trust of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, the Irishman has stated the club should venture into the market to land a replacement ahead of the 2020/21 season by declaring De Gea is not good enough.

“I’ve never been a big fan of his. He makes far too many mistakes, big mistakes that cost United big points,” Keane told Sky Sports ahead of United’s game against Leicester.

“We talk about recruitment, it’s a difficult part of the game. That’s just my opinion. If Manchester United want to challenge for league titles, they need a better goalkeeper.

“They need a change, they’ve done it before. I don’t know what the big song and dance is about a goalkeeper, Man United have been doing it for years.

“Strikers are dropped or sold, same with midfielders, but for some reason, with goalkeepers, they think we have to stick with the goalkeeper for a bit longer than others because of something they did two or three years ago.

“The game doesn’t work like that. We’ve seen Liverpool get onto another level when they’ve improved the goalkeeper.

“What’s the big deal? If he’s not doing it, he’s making mistakes, then make a change. There are good goalkeepers out there.”
