David de Gea’s future in Manchester United not sure

David de Gea

Manchester United are not close in settling  David de Gea’s future with the goalkeeper still holding off signing a new deal. De Gea is out of contract next summer and can sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from January.

The goal keeper wants assurances that United will compete for major honours and is also keen to bring his wages into line with other top earners at the club, including Alexis Sanchez.

The 28-year-old played every Premier League game in 2018-19 and has been at Old Trafford for eight years since joining from Atletico Madrid for £17m.

United are expected to undergo a major overhaul this summer, with the emphasis on securing home-grown young players of potential, while some may leave after a disappointing end to the season which saw two wins from 12 games.
