David de Gea will sign a new contract at Man United despite interest from clubs in Saudi Arabia.
De Gea was one of Erik ten Hag’s most trusted players during his first season at Old Trafford. He also had quite impressive performances, to win the Premier League Golden Gloves season 2022/23.
De Gea’s limitations are obvious. Ten Hag wants to bring competition to De Gea, but insists the Spaniard’s future is at Old Trafford. Man United are still negotiating an extension with De Gea. If he wants to stay, the 32-year-old star must accept a salary reduction of £ 350,000 / week, as well as be willing to accept the reserve. Interest from Saudi Pro League clubs threatens to further complicate the situation.
However, sources revealed to 90min that De Gea has no intention of leaving United for the Middle East at this point in his career. Negotiations between Man United and De Gea have been harmonious from the start and are still progressing well.
At the same time, Ten Hag is also targeting some quality goalkeepers to bring in, the most prominent of which is Porto’s Diogo Costa .
