Man Utd are ready to keep de Gea by force

Manchester United used the option to extend the contract with the Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea for one year. The keeper did not agree with the management on the extension of the contract, so the Red Devils left the player by force until 2020.

Although the team has secured qualification to the playoffs of the Champions League, after defeating Young Boys in the latest round, the situation in the championship is not at all bright. The team of Jose Mourinho occupies seventh position after 13 rounds with a negative difference of scored and concede goals. This confirms the presence of problems of the Mancunians in defense. Therefore, it is not surprising that de Gea wanted to leave next summer already.

The Spaniard’s contract had to expire in the offseason of 2019, but negotiations with the management were stalled. The goalkeeper claimed a salary like Alexis Sanchez - 350 thousand pounds a week, but functionaries rejected the proposal. From January 1, the goalkeeper could conclude a preliminary agreement with another club and leave in the summer in the status of a free agent, but Manchester United were not satisfied. the Mancunians used the right to prolong the agreement for one year with the existing conditions, so as not to lose a few tens of millions of pounds of profit for one of the best goalkeepers of our time.

This season the Spaniard has played in all matches of the Red Devils in the league and concedes 1.62 goals per game on average, which compared to last season’s indicators (0.76) clearly spoils his statistics. Paul Pogba also wants to leave the club due to poor results. The Frenchman is set to return to Juventus; however, there is no official information regarding this matter.

The odds on de Gea to leave for PSG are 11/1, to Juventus – 14/1 and to Bayern or familiar to him Real Madrid – 25/1 according to Sky Bet bookmaking company.
