In the last couple of seasons, David De Gea has been linked to a number of clubs but primarily to Real Madrid. The famous ‘fax-machine’ saga rescued the Red Devils back in 2015 but the Spanish side have come calling a number of times since then.

But this time, Real have some serious competition as Paris Saint Germain reportedly also have joined the race to land the Spanish custodian. The 26-year-old is easily among the top three keepers in the world and has been in unbelievable form for the last few seasons.

De Gea has been the first choice at Old Trafford and his form on goal has saved United many times. His brilliant reflexes have been the main reason behind his success and unarguably, he has been the best keeper in the Premier League for quite a while now.

There are a few names like Thibaut Courtois and Hugo Lloris but no keeper has been able to show the consistency level the Spanish keeper has shown in the last few years. His stocks have gone up a further few levels and it has been a fairytale story at the Old Trafford so far.

But with PSG also interested, United’s chances of keeping him are only declining. So Mourinho needs to have options in mind already and here are three such names he might be keeping tabs on:

Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City):

Schmeichel could be a worthy successor to the Spanish shot-stopper. The Leicester City keeper has been linked a number of times with the Manchester-based outfit but the Foxes have managed to hold onto the player.

However, the Danish ace could be tempted by the fact that he can follow the footsteps of his father, Peter Schmeichel who was a part of United’s rich history.

The 30-year-old also inherited the winning mentality from his father and already won the Premier League with the Foxes, which might be the reason United could turn their attention to him should De Gea leave the club.

Jan Oblak

The player has hit the sort of form which has triggered interest among a number of clubs. The Atletico Madrid keeper is also relatively young than his counterparts but has a €100m release clause in his contract which could be a hindrance in this move.

Kasper Schmeichel

The 18-year-old has already been a huge success for AC Milan and is tipped to be the successor of Gianluigi Buffon in the Italy national setup. But his tender age might be a problem and adjusting to the pros and cons of the Premier League would take time for sure which Mourinho can’t afford at this stage.
