“We need to start asking questions about David de Gea. ”
Gary Neville has suggested that his former Manchester United side must replace David de Gea if they are to challenge for the title.
Neville said neither Pep Guardiola nor Jurgen Klopp would sign a new keeper if they were in charge of the Red Devils.
David of Gea.
De Gea has come on fire for his performance during his 3-3 draw against Everton last week.
The Spanish international was at fault for two of the three goals his team conceded against Carlo Ancelotti’s men.
De Gea’s inconsistent performances have hampered the cost of United’s title. They went from being at the top of the table last month to their current position in third place – eight points behind Manchester City leaders.
Meanwhile, Man United backup defender Dean Henderson remains a talented spectator inside the bats.

So Neville feels his former club may need to enter the transfer market and sign a new goalkeeper to challenge for the Premier League.
“We need to start asking questions about David de Gea, of course we do,” the 45-year-old told Webby and O’Neill Youtube channel.
“The mistakes are becoming more consistent and costing points. And the game-winning and one-on-one savings are getting smaller. ”
The England international also said Guardiola or Klopp would have brought in a new keeper if they had been in charge of Old Trafford.
