The Red Devils moved within four points of fourth-placed Manchester City after Sunday's 3-0 victory at Sunderland.

"It was a good win and we have to keep focus and keep working and keep believing we can reach the top four", The Swede told Sky Sports.

"Most of the players in Manchester United are young - we are here to learn", the 22-year-old defender said.

"He played really well, played solid".

So, this begs the question, what is the better deal for United, letting de Gea go and replacing him with Lloris, or trying to do all they can to keep the Spaniard this summer?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has likened himself to Benjamin Button, saying he "was born old and will die young", after scoring in Manchester United's 3-0 win over Sunderland.

Nonetheless, Spurs keeper Lloris has been part of a Tottenham defence that last season conceded the joint-least amount of goals in the Premier League (incidentally alongside United with 35).

United manager Jose Mourinho said: "You need these players to break it. Mourinho stated there was a "very solid performance" in the Sunderland victory from the former world's most expensive teenager, with David Moyes" side now seeming doomed to the drop this season after another defeat and blank Black Cats display in front of goal.

Sergio Romero deputised for the Spain global and is in line to keep his place for the first leg of United's Europa League quarter-final away to Anderlecht on Thursday.

"We felt the game was in our pocket".

The 21-year-old has endured a hard campaign under the Portuguese tactician, as he has been limited to just 17 appearances in all competitions, while his coach has publicly criticised him on more than one occasion. "The Premier League was not possible because we drew too many matches".

After struggling initially, Sunderland began to get a foothold in the game around the 20-minute mark, with Bryan Oviedo sending a free kick straight at Sergio Romero, and Lee Cattermole doing the same with a hit from open play a few minutes later. We've done everything to win today, we knew that it was not going to be easy.
