The Spaniard has been ranked among the best shot-stoppers on the planet for multiple years now, having survived a tough start to life at Old Trafford to nail down the spot between the sticks.
However, his performances have begun to tail off in recent campaigns. There is an argument that youngster Dean Henderson, who is only 24-years-old, should replace the former Atletico Madrid man in goal for Manchester United.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has begun the 2021/22 seaosn with David as his number one, but that provides no certainties over the player’s long-term future in Manchester.
Todo Fichajes reports that that the board might actually prefer to get him off their wage bill, with the 30-year-old star being one of the highest earners at United.
The report also mentions I Bianconeri as a potential suitor for him, with De Gea said to be a direct improvement on the stopper currently occupying that position, Wojciech Szczesny.
It’ll be interesting to see what decision the English side make, were someone to show an interest in snapping up de Gea. It might be one of their final opportunities to bank any considerable fee in exchange for him.
