Man United have added Emiliano Martinez to their ever-growing list of goalkeeper transfer targets.

For some reason, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side continues to be linked with a move to sign a new shot-stopper, this time around, it’s the Aston Villa man, Emiliano Martinez.

The story comes from the usually-reliable Football Insider, who state that United are eyeing a ‘blockbuster’ transfer, for the 28-year-old Premier League star.

Apparently, United are planning a ‘major overhaul’ in their goalkeeper ranks, by recruiting two senior goalies at the end of the season. A United source has told FI that Martinez sits atop their list of targets.

What’s interesting is that United are also looking to add another keeper, to provide cover and competition…

United’s plan is to keep Dean Henderson around, while finding replacements for both David de Gea and Sergio Romero.

Am I missing something here…?

Henderson looks to be the future number one. He’s so calm and composed, while the Englishman also contributes to our attacks due to his quick-thinking, kicking accuracy and throwing ability. Why on earth would you want to upset that applecart?

Martinez cost Villa £17million, potentially rising to £20million not too long ago. The Midlands club would be looking to make some big profit on that fee. Would that really be the wisest way to spend our money right now?

I just don’t get it. Henderson deserves a real opportunity to prove that he’s the undisputed number one. Sure, go out there and spend a few million quid on a back-up, but I wouldn’t go absolutely mad and make it a massive competition to fight for that number one jersey.
