Manchester United ready to cull their goalkeeping department come the summer

According to Manchester Evening News, Manchester United are set to part ways with three goalkeepers this summer.

The Red Devils are stacked in the position and are currently spending over £600,000 per week on goalkeepers’ wages. While David de Gea and Dean Henderson are safe, the same may not be the case for a few others.

Both Sergio Romero and Joel Pereira signed four-year deals with the club in 2017. With their tenure expiring, they are expected to make way in the summer window.

Romero was keen to leave the club last summer. Unfortunately for him, he has been unable to engineer a move away. Ridding themselves of both players will see United save £85,000 per week in wages.

Pereira has not played for United in more than three years. Currently on loan at Championship side Huddersfield, he has benefitted little from a number of poor loan deals.

Under-23 custodian Paul Woolston is also set to be sent out after spending two and a half years with the second string. 38-year-old Lee Grant is out of contract in June and is unlikely to be handed a new deal.

Grant could, however, stay on at United in a coaching capacity. He has been involved in almost every pre-match warm-up and travels to the majority of first-team games. He has made just one appearance for United in two and a half years.

United can afford to let go of the players who are unlikely to ever make it to the starting XI. De Gea and Henderson are the only two with any realistic chance of doing so and earn a combined £400,000 per week.

The club is better off getting rid of unessential assets and make space in the wage bill for new signings.
