Man Utd to go French to replace De Gea

Manchester United will move for Mike Maignan if David De Gea leaves the club.

The highly-rated Jan Oblak was rumoured to be United's top choice after hinting he would be open to leaving Atletico Madrid.

However, the Daily Mail says Lille whizkid Maignan is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's preferred choice.

The 23-year-old played an integral role in Lille's surprise second-placed finish in Ligue 1 last season.

The France international kept 15 clean sheets to earn him the gong for best goalkeeper in Ligue 1.

De Gea remains at loggerheads with United over a new contract and is currently wanted by PSG and Juventus.
