Man Utd To Sell Current No.1 De Gea For Significant Amount

Manchester United are planning to sell their current No.1 goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Spain international has made a number of costly errors over the past few years, leaving some Red Devils fans calling for academy graduate Dean Henderson to replace him as their first-choice shot-stopper.

Though if reports from Manchester Evening News prove accurate, he could find himself as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s No.1 man in between the sticks next season.

United chiefs want De Gea gone in the summer transfer window due to his hefty £375,000-a-week wages, which contribute to over half of their goalkeeper wage bill.

Along with Henderson, Sergio Romero, Joel Pereira, Under-23 custodian Paul Woolston and back-up veteran Lee Grant, they are currently spending £600,000-a-week on goalkeepers.

The club are keen to cut that figure this summer. De Gea, 30, still has over two years remaining on his United deal, meaning he could be offloaded for a significant amount.
