Manchester United v Stoke City - Premier League
Manchester United's #1 is being heavily linked with a move to the Spanish capital for a past few years.

David de Gea, Manchester United and Spain's number one, has been in exceptional form over the years for both club and country. His quality has been of vital importance to United as he has earned a lot of points for his team by making some crucial saves. The Spaniard has constantly been a subject of interest to Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants came close to signing the Spaniard in 2015 but the move fell through due to some faulty paperwork. However, reports in Spain suggest that The Galacticos would be up for De Gea again as they plan a heavy squad revamp in the summer. Jose Mourinho would be reluctant to sell arguably the best goalkeeper in the world presently until he finds a proper replacement for the Spanish number one. Here, we take a look at the possible options Jose could be looking at, in case De Gea does leave for Spain.

#1 Manuel Neuer

Germany v Ukraine - Group C: UEFA Euro 2016
Neuer has been sidelined with injury for the entire season.

It would be fair enough to say that De Gea is the best presently because the world has not seen Neuer play since April 2017. The German has constantly been providing some breathtaking saves which have proved to play a crucial role in his team winning.

Jose would possibly be looking to splash the cash he gets from De Gea's deal on the German, so as to maintain the standards of goalkeeping at Old Trafford. Neuer would be fit in time for the World Cup in Russia. A few good performances would be enough to ensure that the 31-year-old has not lost his spark at all.
