Premier League club Manchester United are reportedly willing to listen to offers for number one goalkeeper David de Gea when the transfer window opens.

Since his arrival at the Old Trafford club from Atletico Madrid in 2011, De Gea has made 433 appearances and remains the club’s first choice goalie despite Dean Henderson’s return from a successful loan spell at Sheffield United.

Latest reports have it that the Red Devils would allow either of the two goalkeepers to leave during the summer as head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not currently comfortable with the situation.

Also, French club Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly on the trail of six superstars whose respective contracts will lapse at the end of the season.

Barcelona captain Lionel Messi, Bayern Munich star David Alaba and Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum will all see-off their respective contracts at the end of this season.

It was gathered that the French club will be very active in the summer transfer window shopping for the best legs.

Their main target remains Lionel Messi as the Argentine earlier threatened to leave Barcelona, before he was forced to rescind his decision.

And the Argentine could be interested in a move to the French club following Barcelona’s Champions League debacle as they lost 4-1 to the Parisians in the round of 16 first leg.

His intervention has also seen the Blues climb to fifth on the Premier League table - with just six points separating both sides before the crunch affair.
