United prepare for keeper cull

Manchester United are planning a cull of their current crop of goalkeepers in the summer, with Sergio Romero and Joel Pereira amongst those who will be leaving.

Both are out of contact and, although United have the option of a further year in both cases, they are highly unlikely to take them up.

Romero has not played all season and effectively finds himself fifth-choice at the club. The Argentine international was on the verge of joining Everton last summer, but the deal collapsed when United demanded a fee for him at the last minute. His wife subsequently took to social media to complain about how he had been treated.

Pereira has not played for United for more than three years. Instead, he has embarked on a series of loan moves, none of which have worked out, most recently with Huddersfield Town for whom he made one appearance.

38-year old Lee Grant is also set to leave, with his contract too set to expire.
