David De Gea ‘wanted by Juventus on free transfer at the end of the season’… with Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag ‘unsure whether to offer £300,000-a-week goalkeeper a new contract’

  • David de Gea’s Manchester United contract runs out at the end of the season 
  • However the Red Devils have the opportunity to extend his deal by an extra year 
  • De Gea is one of the highest earners at United who lost £115.5million last season 
  • Before the club fell out of the Champions League he earned £350,000-a-week

Juventus are reportedly considering making a move for Manchester united goalkeeper David De Gea at the end of the season. 

The Spanish goalkeeper’s current United deal is up next summer, and they currently risk letting him leave for nothing in nine months’ time. 

De Gea is on of the top earners at the club with wages of over £300,000-a-week and new manager Erik ten Hag is said to be unsure over whether of not the club should offer an extension.

Manchester United are yet to decide whether to extend David de Gea’s contract by a year

And Calciomercato claim Juve are ready to swoop should he become a free agent at the end of the season.

The Spanish goalkeeper’s current United deal is up at the end of the season, and they currently risk letting one of their most important figures leave for nothing in nine months’ time. 

United earlier this week announced wage bill increases of £61.6million on the previous year – a 19.1% rise – as a result of high profile acquisitions, and De Gea’s current deal earned him around £350,000-a-week last season. 

The Telegraph have reported that United are weighing up whether to offer the Spaniard a new deal.

If no extension is triggered, it could mean that De Gea could leave the club on a free transfer next summer.

During his 11-year stay at Old Trafford, the Spanish goalkeeper has played his way to the top of the pile in the United dressing room, and is the only remaining player from the club’s last title-winning squad to regularly play. 

But his eye-watering wages could prove to be an obstacle moving forward, with United declaring losses of £115.5m earlier this week. 

Despite several high profile errors in his United career, including a costly mistake at Brentford in the second game of this season, he has already been given the backing of his manager Erik ten Hag, who claimed: ‘I am convinced that he can do it.’
