Manchester United are on the verge of losing several high-profile players in the summer transfer window. It looks like a major overhaul is set to be on the cards for new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Ander Herrera and Juan Mata are expected to leave on free transfers after no contract agreements. Antonio Valencia has been asked to leave. The likes of Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo, and Eric Bailly look prominent to depart from the club as well.
But now, it has been reported that talismanic goalkeeper David de Gea could also part ways with the Red Devils, with Paris Saint-Germain to be his likely new club.
According to a report in The Sun, PSG have identified De Gea as their number one custodian, and they are ready to offer him mammoth £350,000-a-week wages.
The French champions are willing to pay £60 million for De Gea, and that sum could test United’s resolve. If the Manchester club turns the offer down this summer, then they shall risk losing the Spaniard for free in 2020.
De Gea, whose performances have dipped in recent times, is said to have got his head turned by a possible exit. This could be problematic for United, given that the player has been of great service since many years now.
If De Gea forces an exit, United will perhaps make Sergio Romero their number one keeper. They could also be in the market in search of a strong candidate as well.
Besides PSG, the likes of Juventus and Real Madrid are also believed to be interested in the keeper. The report also adds that De Gea, who was close to agreeing on a new deal, has now changed his mind.
United could land in further dilemma with Romelu Lukaku stating that he has an eye for a move to Italy. Midfielder Paul Pogba is being eyed by Real Madrid, and the club is also open to sell Alexis Sanchez. It’s interesting days ahead for the Old Trafford unit.
