Man United could end David De Gea woes with a former Europa League winner

Manchester United could be set to replace David De Gea with Europa League winner Kevin Trapp.

Erik ten Hag's side picked up their first win of the season on Monday evening against an underperforming Liverpool side, who have slumped to 16th. Before kick-off on Monday evening, United had failed to pick up any points, and De Gea had been central to criticism.

De Gea, himself, admitted he was to blame for two of the four goals shipped against Brentford. And reports from German outlet BILD have suggested that ten Hag could be ready to move for Trapp to replace the Spaniard.

United's priority is to sign Antony from Ajax and Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven before the window slams shut.

However, Ten Hag also wants to add a third keeper to his squad, and the Eintracht Frankfurt man looks to be the frontrunner. The Red Devils have also considered moves for Yann Sommer of Borussia Monchengladbach and Asmir Begovic of Everton.

Another German outlet, Kicker, are reporting United are set to launch an official bid for Trapp that will be less than £8million.

United's latest marquee signing Casemiro was in attendance at Old Trafford to watch his new side beat the Champions League finalists.

The Brazilian said: "I'm ending one beautiful journey in Madrid whilst starting another in Manchester as determined as ever to win football matches, win trophies and make our fans proud by bringing success to this great club.

"I have worked with many great managers in my career and, having met with Erik and heard his ideas, I can't wait to work closely with him."
