Manchester United’s David de Gea, 32, could be headed to Saudi Arabia.
“De Gea could be set to reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo,” the British media outlet The Daily Mail reported on Monday (June 1). Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr are preparing to sign the out-of-contract player,” the Daily Mail reported.
“De Gea’s contract with United has expired. He could sign a new contract with the club, but there is also a strong belief that he could find another team.”
“Ronaldo’s club Al Nasr are actively pursuing him,” the report said, adding that he would earn £250,000 a week if he joined the club. 메이저사이트
De Gea joined United in the 2011-12 season from Atletico Madrid and has been an undisputed first-choice goalkeeper ever since. For 12 seasons, he was an integral part of the team, leading them to one Premier League title, one UEFA Europa League title, and two EFL Cups.
However, as time has gone on, De Gea’s performance has declined as he has aged. He was criticized for frequent mistakes and unsteady feet. It was even said that he didn’t fit into the system of manager Eric ten Hagg.
He currently earns a hefty weekly wage of £375,000 per week. De Gea wants to stay at the club, even if it means taking a lower salary, but it’s not easy. In addition, United are looking for a goalkeeper to replace De Gea. They are looking at Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana. 오래된 토토사이트
It seems likely that De Gea will be the number one option next season. However, if he heads to Al Nasr, he could be in line for a starting spot. His woes will only deepen.
Meanwhile, Al Nasr failed to win the title last season despite signing Ronaldo. With De Gea, the club has invested aggressively and is determined to be at the top of the table next season. The outlet added: “Al Nasr are close to signing Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic. Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech’s transfer remains uncertain after he failed a medical.”
