Manchester United eyeing up transfer of £20M shot-stopper as potential David De Gea replacement

Man United are said to be eyeing up a move for Croatian goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic, as the Red Devils begin looking at potential replacements for David De Gea.

De Gea has proven to be one of the best goalkeepers on the planet in the past few years, and it’d come as a big blow for the Red Devils were they to lose him on a free next summer.
