Juventus reportedly eye move for Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea

Juventus are reportedly considering a move for Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea at the end of the 2022/23 season, Newspremises reports.

The Spaniard’s current United deal will end next summer, and they currently risk letting him leave for nothing in nine months’ time.

De Gea is one of the top earners at the club with wages of over £300,000-a-week and new manager Erik ten Hag is said to be unsure over whether of not the club should offer an extension.

And Italian media outfit Calciomercato claim Juventus are ready to swoop should he become a free agent at the end of the season.

United earlier this week announced wage bill increases of £61.6million on the previous year – a 19.1% rise – as a result of high profile acquisitions, and De Gea’s current deal earned him around £350,000-a-week last season.

The Telegraph have reported that United are weighing up whether to offer the Spaniard a new deal.

If no extension is triggered, it could mean that De Gea could leave the club on a free transfer next summer.

During his 11-year stay at Old Trafford, the Spanish goalkeeper has played his way to the top of the pile in the United dressing room, and is the only remaining player from the club’s last title-winning squad to regularly play.

But his eye-watering wages could prove to be an obstacle moving forward, with United declaring losses of £115.5m earlier this week.
