Free Transfer: De Gea Set To Leave Man United
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is “reluctant” to sign a new contract with the club and could leave for free in 2019.
The Spaniard has said he would leave the club if the club’s fortunes don’t improve, according to the Telegraph.
He signed a four-year deal, with the option of an extra 12 months following the collapse of his dream move to Real Madrid in 2015.
United boss, Jose Mourinho had insisted early in the season that the club were confident of keeping De Gea.
The Telegraph reports that the Spaniard is having second thoughts.
The newspaper claims United met with De Gea’s agent, Jorge Mendes, last Friday in London but failed to come to an agreement.
The club now fear De Gea is having second thoughts over signing a new deal and could be faced with the dilemma of selling him this summer or allowing him to leave for free in 2020.
