David de Gea (32), the spiritual leader of Manchester United, is in danger of being abandoned like a devoted partner.
British media ‘The Sun’ said on the 18th (Korean time), ‘Man United will not extend the contract with De Gea. De Gea will be released on a free contract.”
The Sun actually hinted at a breakup, saying, “De Gea wants to stay at Manchester United, but Manchester United seem reluctant to renew his contract.”
De Gea joined Manchester United in 2011. He is one of the few players to experience the 2012-2013 season, which was Manchester United’s last Premier League win. It is called the last legacy of former manager Alex Ferguson.
De Gea spent the last days of Manchester United’s glory days. He spent most of his prime in Manchester United’s dark days. Manchester United have been in a long slump, but De Gea has maintained his skills and kept the goal.
Manchester United have appointed new manager Eric Tenhach this season. He started an intense rebuild.
According to The Sun, Tenhag wants a goalkeeper with good footwork.
The Sun said ‘Tenhag prefers a goalkeeper who is more comfortable handling the ball under his feet. He said he is interested in Portuguese goalkeeper Diogo Costa of FC Porto.
De Gea is still at an age where he can perform at the top level as a goalkeeper.
However, he was not selected for the final selection for the Spain national team for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The Sun coldly diagnosed the reality, saying, “De Gea’s fate is summarized in that he was not selected for the Spanish national team.”
The weekly wage is also quite high. 토토
De Gea was Manchester United’s second-highest paid player until Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract was terminated. Ronaldo’s weekly wage is 500,000 pounds (about 800 million won), and De Gea’s weekly wage is known to be 375,000 pounds (about 600 million won). When Ronaldo left Manchester United, De Gea became the highest paid player.
The Sun diagnosed that “Man United will be able to secure a great deal of flexibility financially, saying that following Ronaldo’s sudden departure (if he also sends De Gea), he will cut a huge amount from the wage bill.”
De Gea won 1 Premier League title, 1 FA Cup title, 1 League Cup title and 1 Europa League title during his 11-year spell at Manchester United.
