Despite interest from clubs in Saudi Arabia, Manchester United anticipates David de Gea to sign a new deal with the club, according to sources.
One of Erik ten Hag’s most dependable players during his first season at Old Trafford was De Gea, the 2022–23 Premier League Golden Glove winner.
An announcement to confirm this new contract has been anticipated, and terms with De Gea have already been agreed upon in principle. However, late interest from Saudi Arabia’s Pro League threatens to complicate matters.
Nevertheless, according to a number of news outlets, De Gea does not now have the desire to leave Man Utd for the Middle East.
Despite the fact that De Gea’s current deal expires at the end of this month, negotiations between Man Utd and De Gea have been cordial from the beginning, and neither party has ever expressed concern that agreements would not be reached.
The fact that De Gea has consistently earned more than £350,000 per week than any other player at the club posed the one significant challenge. But in exchange for staying at Old Trafford, the goalkeeper is taking a substantial wage reduction. A confirmation of his new contract is anticipated at some point this month.
Man United will seek to increase competition between the sticks once De Gea’s contract is finalized because they presently have few backup options.
After Jack Butland’s loan from Crystal Palace expired, he joined Rangers and played out the season with Manchester United. Dean Henderson, a longtime understudy, is about to transfer permanently to Nottingham Forest.
