Manchester United have been urged to sell the two goalkeepers vying for the first choice shirt at the club so as to sign a world-class goalkeeper.

This is according to Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher while he was on Sky Sports.

According to him, Manchester United need a world class goalkeeper in between the sticks to be able to fulfil their targets which include challenging the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League title on a regular basis.

Manchester United have two strong goalkeepers in David De Gea and Dean Henderson as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer potentially faces a big decision after David De Gea has consistently failed in between the stick.

David De Gea was the first choice ahead of Argentine international Sergio Romero before Dean Henderson returned to Old Trafford to sign a new contract after two successful years while on loan at Sheffield United.

Jamie Carragher wants Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign a world class shot stopper in January transfer window but that will happen if the club sells De Gea and/or Henderson.

The Reds legend questioned whether Dean Henderson is ready for the job of being the first choice goalkeeper ahead of David De Gea who was previously regarded as a world class talent until high profile errors became his signature.

Carragher also said that Solskjaer will be watching his goalkeepers closely and that the manager will access Dean Henderson especially in 12 months.
