Free Agent: De Gea Set To Leave Man Utd
According to the UK Sun, David De Gea, the Manchester United goalkeeper, is on the verge of rejecting their contract offer and leaving Old Trafford on a free transfer next summer.
De Gea’s current deal expires at the end of the season, but despite holding extensive talks with United, an agreement over a new deal has not yet been reached.
The Red Devils have offered the Spaniard a deal worth £350,000 a week, which would make him the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world.
But De Gea has told friends he is “willing to snub” the offer.
His Spain teammates feel the 28-year-old could stall until January, at which point he would be free to negotiate with teams outside of the Premier League.
