David De Gea set to leave Manchester United for free as he refuses to pen the new bumper deal by the club which could have extended his stay.
David De Gea is in the final year of his current contract at Manchester United, and the negotiations for a new extension are still going on to see the Spanish goalkeeper paying further for the Red Devils.
However, in recent advancements, according to a report by the The Sun, De Gea will reject a bumper contract worth £350,000 per week so that he can leave on a free transfer in the summer of 2020.
De Gea was speculated to leave Manchester United this summer, and PSG were proposing an offer, but the deal could not take off and the 28-year-old goalkeeper stayed at the Old Trafford.
On the other hand, Manchester United were desperate to make him sign a better contract or sell him this summer, since some value could have been acquired from the last year of his contract.
However, the player is in the last year of his contract and is allowed to start negotiating personal terms with any club from January, to make his move next summer and Manchester United cannot do anything about it except offering a new contract.
Even though De Gea has been subject to high-profile errors last season, the Spanish international is still valued in the European market.
Although, it is still unknown which club he might go, as PSG, who were genuinely interested so far, have signed Keylor Navas from Real Madrid on a permanent transfer this summer.
The speculations by the Sun are yet to be verified and probably De Gea wants to see certain improvements in his contract and will solve the transfer uncertainty in coming months.
