Manchester United are increasingly uncertain over David De Gea’s future at Old Trafford due to Madrid’s persistent and increasing offer for the Spaniard.
Though the goalie has ensured the club that he won’t switch to Real Madrid in the summer, United are not comfortable with the Zinedine Zidane’s decision to lure him to Santiago Bernabeu at all cost by the close of the season.
Due to their fears over the Spaniard’s future, the Red Devils are now set to compete with Liverpool for Roma netminder Alisson when the summer transfer window begins.
The Brazilian has been nothing short of brilliant in his performances for the Serie A giants this season and Mourinho is reportedly ready to do all he could to convince him to join the Old Trafford outfits ahead of next season.
According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport last month, Liverpool were leading the race for his services as they hope to integrate him into their starting lineup as soon as possible should he decide to join them.
But the latest news via the same media outlet suggest that United and Chelsea could overtake the Reds in the race to capture the Brazilian’s signature.
United will have to do so much to convince Roma president James Pallotta, before he could allow the keeper to move to Old Trafford. Pallotta is unwilling to let him go in the summer as he publicly declared his desire to keep him beyond this summer.
