Manchester United finished second on the Premier League points table last season, ending the campaign12 points behind the champions Manchester City. That gap between the league champions and the Red Devils stood at 33 points in the 2019-20 season, showing the overall improvement the club has gradually made over the last year or so.
Now comes the task of adding reinforcements and strengthening the squad further. The goalkeeping situation at Old Trafford is one that might need sorting out soon.
David de Gea and Dean Henderson are competing for the first-team gloves at the moment. And Solskjaer might have to make a decision soon regarding who his long-term number 1 is because neither of the two will want to sit on the bench next season.
Resolving the issue won’t be that straightforward, however. One of the pair might eventually end up leaving Old Trafford this summer. And as a result, it looks like the club might have to bring in a goalkeeper or two soon, especially with Sergio Romero set to leave as well.

Manchester United’s new signing Tom Heaton set to be unveiled soon
As reported by Football Insider, the Red Devils have finalised the signing of Tom Heaton but his unveiling won’t happen until 1st July.
Heaton’s contract with Aston Villa is set to run out at the end of this month and then, it looks like he will complete a return to Old Trafford on a free transfer.
A Manchester United academy graduate, he left the club in search of first-team football before ever making a senior appearance. And hopefully, that will change for him this time around.
Heaton has had a great career, having played for the likes of Burnley, Aston Villa, Cardiff City and Bristol City ever since departing Old Trafford. He has also represented the England national team on three occasions.
