Manchester United quoted price for David de Gea replacement

Maignan on United radar

Manchester United are reportedly weighing up a summer move for goalkeeper Mike Maignan, who is currently in the ranks of French side Lille.



The Red Devils are likely to be in the market for a new shot-stopper this summer with David de Gea reluctant to extend his stay beyond the end of next season.

According to The Record, United are likely to consider the sale of De Gea in the next couple of months, should he continue with the ongoing contract standoff with the club.

The same report claims that Lille's Maignan has been earmarked as one of the prime targets and the French side have informed that it would take at least £31m to approve the transfer.

The ex-Paris Saint-Germain graduate kept 17 clean sheets in 42 appearances for Lille last term and that helped them secure the runner-up spot while sealing a return to next season's Champions League.

He has recently been called up to the France national side for the first time.
