Manchester United has seen gradual progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer through his time as the manager of the club. While the last two seasons were all about moulding the core of the team, the 2020-21 campaign has seen them take huge steps towards challenging for the Premier League title once again.
Solskjaer has added depth in various positions. The club signed Donny van de Beek, Alex Telles, and Edinson Cavani to provide competition to the likes of Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial.
Dean Henderson was also brought back from his successful two-year loan spell at Sheffield United in order to increase competition between the sticks and it seems to have worked well for both the goalkeepers.
But in regard to the goalkeeping situation, things might get altered once again in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Manchester United linked with Emiliano Martinez
David de Gea has not been at the top of his game for quite some time now. And the Spaniard has been linked with an Old Trafford exit as a result of it.
A report in Football Insider claims Manchester United are lining up an offer for Aston Villa’s Emiliano Martinez, who has done an excellent job this season and is considered by many to be the best goalkeeper in the Premier League right now.
The 28-year-old Argentine goalkeeper joined Aston Villa from Arsenal in the last summer transfer window for a reported transfer fee of £17million that could rise to £20 million with various performance-related add-ons.
Having kept 14 clean sheets in 28 Premier League games this season, it is safe to say that Martinez is one of the most in-form goalkeepers in the world right now and could provide competition to anybody, be it Henderson or De Gea. Thus, it will be interesting to see whether the Red Devils do indeed sign him in the summer.
