Louis Saha has urged his former team to sign Edouard Mendy from Chelsea as a replacement for David De Gea.
The Spanish goalkeeper has been a loyal servant for the Red Devils and has consistently saved his side from defeat on numerous occasions. During some of the club’s lowest moments since Alex Ferguson retired, De Gea has been the one shining light.

But despite still being a great goalkeeper, Man United haven’t renewed his contract which runs out in the summer.
Erik ten Hag wants to play a particular brand of football that De Gea isn’t particularly suited for and considering his lofty wages, moving him on now makes sense.
But who do you replace him with?
The club’s former striker Saha, thinks that he has the perfect replacement.
“De Gea is still right at the top level, but of course making mistakes like he did against Everton is never good,” Saha told Boyle Sports.
“Over the years, De Gea has done tremendous performances to save the team and he deserves the time and credit for that.
“If De Gea doesn’t sign a new contract then a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy would make perfect sense. He has been one of the best goalkeepers in the world the last few years and I’m not sure what happened.”
Who do you think would be the ideal replacement?
