Manchester United fear that back-up goalkeepers Sergio Romero and Lee Grant will both leave the club in the summer, according to reports.

Romero and Grant have found regular opportunities hard to come across with the Red Devils after finding themselves behind first-choice stopper David de Gea.

And The Sun claims that United are expecting both goalkeepers to leave Old Trafford at the end of the current campaign, with potential replacements already being considered.

Romero has frequently impressed since joining the club on a free transfer from Sampdoria in 2015 and is widely considered one of the best back-ups in England.

Although his current deal does not expire until 2021, it is understood that the 32-year-old is keen to find regular first-team football and is planning to hold showdown talks with the Red Devils later this month.

Sergio Romero has impressed for Manchester United but has been unable to dislodge David de Gea

According to the publication, the veteran is already attracting interest from a number of clubs around Europe including La Liga duo Real Sociedad and Villarreal.

Meanwhile, Grant's current deal expires in the summer and it is claimed that he is yet to hold talks over his future.

A United source reportedly told The Sun : “Sergio Romero is happy at United but there is plenty of interest being shown in him.

“At one stage, he thought he might even have a shot at being No1, but that was before David (De Gea) renewed his contract late last year.

Lee Grant has played just once for United's first team this season

“There have already been discussions to look at who might be recruited if both of them (Romero and Grant) go. That's what's likely to happen."

Despite making 54 appearances for the Red Devils, Romero has largely been restricted to playing in cup competitions and has featured in the Premier League just seven times.

This season has been no different, with none of the Argentina international's ten appearances coming in the league, where De Gea has been consistently used.

Opportunities have been even more sparse for third-choice Grant since he arrived in 2018.
