5 Goalkeepers set to leave Manchester United this summer

Upto 5 goalkeepers can leave Manchester United this summer according to The Manchester Evening News although that won’t include United’s Player of the year, David De Gea. Theo Richardson who has made two appearances for the U-23s this season is set to leave as he has been playing in exit trial games. Max Johnstone is another goalkeeper who could leave United as he has not made a single appearance for either the U18s or the U23s. His brother, Sam Johnstone who is also with United but has been on loan with Aston Villa has outlined his desire to stay with Villa on permanent basis. Aston Villa has a chance to get promoted to the Premier League, so Johnstone has a real chance of being a Premier League regular.

Dean Henderson, another goalkeeper on United’s books has only two months left on his United contract and could leave the club for free. Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui, a Belgian goalkeeper who joined United in 2015 has had a trial with Anderlecht.
