‘Good Choice’ ‘Make It Happen’ ‘Just Stick With Dean Henderson’ United Fans Debate Interest In £53m Rated Goalkeeper

Manchester United are weighing up an approach for AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, according to reports in Italy.

The 20-year-old could cost as much as €60m (£53m) with the Italian international being lined up as a possible replacement for David De Gea.

A lot of fans on Twitter think Donnarumma has the quality to be United’s number one:

Some, though, think it would be better to keep faith with Sergio Romero or Dean Henderson if De Gea does leave the club:

Considering that Chelsea spent £72m on Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao, and Liverpool signed Alisson Becker from Roma for £67m, £53m does seem a pretty reasonable figure in the current transfer market.

Still, there are question marks over Donnarumma’s ability at the top level. Filling De Gea’s shoes would be tough for any keeper, and the Italian would need to have the right mentality to handle the pressure if he moved to Old Trafford.
