The rivalry between Red Devils and Leeds has always been an interesting one. It’s clearly fierce and both sides have sung about each other despite being in different divisions for years, but it’s not uncommon to see footballers moving between the teams either.

It generally seems to be the case that the Red Devils are the buying club in that relationship Alan Smith and Eric Cantona are the best-known examples, but it could be Leeds who make the signing this summer.

There are always two things that newly promoted sides need if they want to compete in the PL a regular goalscorer and a top-class keeper who can keep games close.

Leeds United are looking at Sergio Romero to fill the goalkeeping role next campaign, and it would be an interesting one if it happens.

It would immediately give Red Devils a decision to make in terms of signing a new back up or possibly keeping Dean Henderson as a backup and stunting his development.

From a Leeds point of view, it’s almost impossible to tell if he would be a great addition, purely because Romero doesn’t play in the PL too much.

He’s a solid back up who does have an annoying tendency to punch or parry the ball at all chances, but he’s also vastly experienced and he’s good with his feet too.
