Manchester United will reportedly part ways with at least three goalkeepers this summer, as Old Trafford chief Ed Woodward looks to address a £600,000-per-week problem.
The Red Devils have five shot-stoppers as part of their first-team set-up, with a combined total of £600k-a-week being spent in wages on goalkeepers.
But, in an attempt to lower their wage list as the coronavirus crisis continues to wreak havoc on the club’s finances, Woodward is keen to cut ties with a host of players in the summer.
And the United chief is understood to have identified the goalkeeping department as his priority, with several big-name stars out of contract in the summer.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Sergio Romero will be among those to leave the club at the end of the season.

The Argentine is effectively fifth-choice at Old Trafford and saw a potential exit in the last two transfer windows fail to materialise.
David de Gea is currently Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s No.1, although Dean Henderson is knocking on the door for more first-team opportunities.
And Lee Grant and Nathan Bishop are also both above Romero in the pecking order, leaving the experienced 33-year-old facing an uncertain future.
The MEN also claim that Joel Pereira, who has underwhelmed on loan at Huddersfield this season, will be released at the end of the season.

Meanwhile Grant, 38, is out of contract in June and unlikely to have his playing contract extended, though he could stay on at United in a coaching capacity.
Another keeper facing an uncertain feature is Paul Woolston, with the popular Under-23s star set to be let go after spending two-and-a-half years with the second string.
Indeed, United are ready to cull their goalkeeping department in an attempt to lower their weekly wage bill.
De Gea is the club’s highest earner on £300,000 a week while Henderson collects £100,000 a week.
As well as Grant, Bishop, Pereira, Romero and Woolston, the Red Devils have a string of other goalkeepers on their books.
That includes Czech Republic trio Matej Kovar, Ondrej Mastny and Radek Vitek.
Meanwhile, it emerged that month that Romero said his goodbyes to the staff at Manchester United as he nears the Old Trafford exit.
The Red Devils shot-stopper had not been training at United’s Carrington complex for several weeks.
The Argentine is instead believed to have been training back in Buenos Aires, and is expected to move to Boca Juniors ahead of this summer’s Copa America.
United gave Romero the green light to leave the UK to train in Argentina – and he could now be set for a permanent exit.
