Roy Keane thinks Manchester United must replace David De Gea if they are serious about challenging for the Premier League title.

Despite managing 13 clean sheets, the Spaniard has come under fire for a number of mistakes this season.

Keane has been one of those vocal critics and he believes the 29-year-old must be replaced if United are to mount a successful title challenge.

The United legend told Sky Sports: “I’ve never been a big fan of his. He makes far too many mistakes, big mistakes that cost United big points.

“We talk about recruitment, it’s a difficult part of the game. That’s just my opinion. If Manchester United want to challenge for league titles, they need a better goalkeeper.

“They need a change, they’ve done it before. I don’t know what the big song and dance is about a goalkeeper, Manchester United have been doing it for years.

“Strikers are dropped or sold, same with midfielders, but for some reason, with goalkeepers, they think we have to stick with the goalkeeper for a bit longer than others because of something they did two or three years ago.

“The game doesn’t work like that. We’ve seen Liverpool get onto another level when they’ve improved the goalkeeper.

“What’s the big deal? If he’s not doing it, he’s making mistakes, then make a change. There are good goalkeepers out there.”
