MANCHESTER UNITED fear having to recruit TWO new goalkeepers in the summer – and have already drawn up a list of transfer replacements.

The Red Devils are expecting No2 Sergio Romero to leave, along with Lee Grant, who is eyeing the exit door.

The talented Argentine stopper is already planning talks this month to discuss his on-going role at the club.

The 32-year-old has just over a year left on his deal, but he is desperate to get regular first-team action.

It is understood Villarreal and Real Sociedad have sounded his representatives out, along with a number of other clubs around Europe.

He earns around £60,000-a-week, with United still having the option to extend his terms by a further 12-months.

Third-choice Grant, 37, is out of contract this summer, and there have been no talks over extending his stay beyond this season.

United are still undecided whether to bring Dean Henderson back from his loan spell at Sheffield United.

The 22-year-old has spent the past two seasons on loan with the Yorkshire-club, which has been highly-successful.

There have already been talks for the England goalkeeper to spend another campaign with Chris Wilder, to continue his development.

A United source said: “Sergio Romero is happy at United but there is plenty of interest being shown in him.

“At one stage, he thought he might even have a shot at being No1, but that was before David renewed his contract late last year.

“There have already been discussions to look at who might be recruited if both of them go. That’s what’s likely to happen.”
