Time for goodbye? Man United would be wise to part ways with their world-class star and sign this 24-year-old Croatian star

Manchester United should sign Dominic Livakovic

Manchester United’s promising start to the season come to a halt as Crystal Palace managed their first-ever Premier League win over the Red Devils in remarkable fashion after United had equalized in the final minutes.

A lot of talk in the past couple of weeks have been around many different aspects around the club but what hasn’t garnered enough attention despite the glaring evidence is that David De Gea’s form has absolutely pummeled since last year’s World Cup.

Widely considered one of the best Goalkeepers in the world prior to the competition, having come off a miraculous season, the 28-year-old seems to have a mental issue.

His performances towards the end of last season were considered a blip but they’ve resurfaced once again and a decision will have to be made soon with only a year left on his contract.

United seem to be lining up a replacement according to the Metro, with Dinamo Zagreb’s Dominik Livakovic being linked.

The 24-year-old starred in the first leg of the Champions League playoff against Rosenborg last week and is seen as the future of the Croatian national side.

He’s very different to De Gea as he’s extremely loud in his own box, quick to get off his line and good with his distribution. He’s made an array of fantastic reflex saves and his personality is something that United can look at as De Gea is a very calm and quiet personality.

United already have options to fall back upon, in Sergio Romero, Dean Henderson (on loan at Sheffield United) and Joel Pereira (also out on loan).

However, it’s hard to determine if any of them is ready to be a regular fixture in the side. The goalkeeping position isn’t just for stopping balls from going into the net anymore as one has to be the 11th outfield player, and United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping that they move forward with the change in role.
