The Englishman more or less usurped David de Gea as the No1 towards the end of last season, but the Spain international did start in the Europa League final.

The campaign couldn’t have ended much worse for David, who failed to save any of the penalties and his missed spot-kick cost the Red devils the UEL trophy.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a final decision to make on who will be his first-choice shot-stopper next season.

And at the moment Dean is the man he is set to go with for the 2021/22 term, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The 24-year-old star recently left the England camp because of an injury and is now looking to be fit for the pre-season campaign with Manchester United next month.

As things stand, Dean is expected to be in the Manchester United goal when the club host Leeds United at The Theatre of Dreams in the opening weekend of the PL season.

It is likely to bring De Gea’s future at the club under the scanner as the player is prepared to move on if he is not the first pick at United any longer.
