However, the Portuguese confirmed that De Gea would continue next season at the club.

He would be in line to replace De Gea if the Spaniard's move to Real, which has been mooted for several years, was to be completed this summer.

Speaking to Sky Sports after his side's 0-0 draw against Southampton on Wednesday evening, Mourinho said that he thinks that De Gea will play for United in the "first match in pre-season against Los Angeles" in response to whether the 'keeper would play for the club again.

Within days of the move breaking down, De Gea committed his long term future to the club. "Hopefully we don't have problems with these two 'keepers".

Romero said: "I played one year with Gabbiadini in Sampdoria in Italy and a lot of training".

The Spanish shot stopper will be hoping to feature ahead of Sergio Romero in next week's Europa League final in Stockholm against Ajax.

Sergio Romero has been great and I think he is a very good global goalkeeper and he has to stay. I arrived here in the a year ago, free, nobody knew me.

"Now with the confidence that Jose gives me and the confidence the players give me, the confidence for me is very important and I will try and do my best for the team".

Romero joined United on a free transfer from Sampdoria in the summer of 2015 after his contract ran out with the Italian club.

United, who are sixth in the table, finish their Premier League campaign at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday (3pm).

United will demand £60m for De Gea and manager Jose Mourinho has identified Oblak as a potential replacement for the Spain global.
