According to reports, Manchester United scouts have reportedly identified Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret as a potential signing in order to provide competition to current first-choice goalie David de Gea.

The Spaniard remains manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-choice goalkeeper, despite criticisms for a series of high-profile errors this season.

With De Gea starting the 20/21 season as United’s No. 1, Henderson is expected to head out on loan again having enjoyed two seasons with Sheffield United.

Sergio Romero will likely remain as De Gea’s back-up, but the Norwegian wants to add a young talent to his squad to add further competition for places.

The Italian is viewed as one of Europe’s most promising goalkeepers and has been capped at every age group, including the senior national team, by Italy.

The 23-year-old started 21 times in Serie A this season.
