Three clubs chasing David de Gea as Man Utd goalkeeper eyes transfer after axe

David de Gea could be approaching the end of his time at Manchester United after being axed as a guaranteed starter.

The Spaniard had retained his No 1 status this term despite the return of Dean Henderson to Old Trafford.

He returned to Spain for the birth of his first child which afforded his understudy a recent run of games.

But upon his return Henderson has continued to start and De Gea was forced to watch on from the bench against Brighton on Sunday.

It appears unlikely that both goalkeepers will be at Old Trafford next season and the Daily Mail reports that the Spaniard is ready to seek pastures new.

His former side Atletico Madrid have been credited with interest as have their city rivals Real Madrid.

French giants PSG are also being linked with a move for De Gea, who would cost around £40m.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was keen to downplay his selection of Henderson on Sunday as he told BT Sport: "I've got two very, very good goal-keepers.

"Two No 1's, simple as. Two No 1's and that's it."

De Gea's stock has fallen slightly over recent years, the man who once won four Player of the Year awards became increasingly error strewn.


Despite that he was awarded a lucrative new deal in the summer of 2019 that has a further two years to run following the conclusion of the current campaign.

The consensus is that United are now ready to back youth and with Henderson just 24 he is the club's future.

Former Red Devil Rio Ferdinand said: "If Dean Henderson finishes the season as number one, I don’t see De Gea staying there. No chance, I don’t see it. I think he’ll go out now.

"His wages will be a determining factor but at the end of the day, two number ones doesn’t work. De Gea has been a mainstay in the team but Ole is maybe seeing things differently now.

"He’s put Henderson in front of him in the queue. Does De Gea accept that and stay? I don’t think so."
