A Man City star has surprisingly emerged as a transfer target for Manchester United.

The Red Devils are set for yet another squad overhaul this summer, and are extensively linked with some of the finest stars in Europe.

They have several roles in the squad that need to be improved on, and the latest position that has turned into a headache for the Portuguese manager is the goalkeeper’s role.

While David De Gea is settled and is expected to stay at Old Trafford for another year, the 2018 FA Cup finalists are expected to lose Sergio Romero this summer.

The Argentine international, who was the first choice for the national team for the World Cup before getting ruled out due to his knee injury, has only played second fiddle to De Gea at United.

He was used by Jose Mourinho in the cup games, but reports suggest that he is desperate for more game time, and is likely to quit the club before the start of next season.

This has pushed Mourinho in the transfer market for a shot-stopper who can act as a backup for the Spanish superstar, and one name doing the rounds is Joe Hart.

The English international, who spent last season on loan in Turin, spent another season on loan at West Ham from Manchester City, but failed to keep up his reputation.

The 31-year-old was far from consistent, and also lost his place in the national team, now ready to search for another club.

Reports from The Sun claim that Manchester United are looking at him as an option this summer. However, he is not the only player they are looking at.

Manchester United are also interested in Craig Gordon and Ben Foster, both 35, and are decent options for a backup keeper for any top side.
