Manchester United have made some enquiries for Roma goalkeeper Allison as the future of David De Gea once again comes into question, as reported by the Mirror.

The Brazilian keeper has stepped up this season and has been the stand out stopper in Serie A with a number of clubs showing interest in him.

United’s Premier League rivals Liverpool were keen but have been put off by the fact that the Italians were demanding £88m for the player.

The Old Trafford club are keeping their eyes open with Real Madrid continuing to show a heavy interest in De Gea and they don’t want to leave themselves helpless if he is unable to stay at the club.

Allison is set to play a vital role for his country this summer at the World Cup as Brazil look to get back to the top of World football.
