GIST:Manchester United Prepared To Sell As Many As Five Goalkeepers

Manchester United are prepared to sell as many as five goalkeepers at the end of the season, according to a report.

Manchester United are said to be preparing a mass clearout between the sticks below first-team level, including the departures of Theo Richardson and Max Johnstone.

Richardson has made two starts for the club’s Under-23s side this term, while Johnstone – the younger brother of fellow keeper Sam – has not made a single appearance at Under-18s level or above.

The Manchester Evening News claims that Dean Henderson and Belgian teenager Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui are also expected to move on before the start of next season, with the latter recently having a trial with Anderlecht.

Sam Johnstone is a confirmed target for Aston Villa, meanwhile, having impressed on loan with the Championship side this term.

U23 regular Kieran O’Hara, Joel Pereira and number two stopper Sergio Romero have all signed new United contracts over the last year. Jose Mourinho said there was ‘no chance’ of David de Gea leaving and United intend to offer him improved terms.
