Man Utd need a better goalkeeper than De Gea to be Premier League challengers - Keane

Roy Keane believes Manchester United need to sign a "better goalkeeper" over the summer to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

The Spaniardhowever didmake a number of costly errors this season with Keane previously declaring he was "sick to death" of De Gea.

While De Gea conceded just two goals across the final four games of the Premier League season for the Red Devils, Keane is adamant the club must find a replacement if they want to reach the next level.

"I’ve never been a big fan of his. He makes far too many mistakes, big mistakes that cost United big points," Keane toldSky Sportsabout De Gea ahead of United's game against Leicester.

"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, Man 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."

Despite Keane's plea, the Red Devils are unlikely to replace De Gea anytime soon with the 29-year-old contracted at Old Trafford until 2023.

Solskjaer has also shown plenty of faith in the Spanish shot-stopper in recent times and believes he remainsa "top keeper".

"David has proven it over the years. Form might be temporary, but class is permanent. He's an absolutely top keeper," Solskjaertold Sky Sports earlier this week.
