Manchester United want to sign Dinamo Zagreb goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic as a replacement for David De Gea, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils have sent a scout to watch Dinamo Zagreb’s 2-0 victory over Rosenborg in the Champions League Play-Off first leg last week.

The same article states that Manchester United are considering Livakovic as a replacement for De Gea if the Spain international doesn’t commit to a new deal.

According to the same story, Livakovic would be reasonably priced at around £15m and £20m should Manchester United decide to act upon their interest.

The Sun go on to add that Liverpool FC have also been linked with the 24-year-old shot-stopper as Jurgen Klopp looks to sign a back-up for Alisson Becker.

However, the Merseyside outfit have reportedly cooled their interest since signing Spanish goalkeeper Adrian on a free transfer.

De Gea has already conceded three goals in three games in the Premier League this season.

The Spain international is set to become a free agent next summer unless De Gea opts to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Manchester United lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in the Premier League at the weekend.
