Juventus is interested in signing Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea on a free transfer next summer.
De Gea may leave Manchester United for free when his contract expires next summer.
The Dutchman, who prefers players who are more at ease with the ball at their feet, may try to replace the Spanish goalkeeper.
Even though De Gea is among the best shot-stoppers in Europe, Ten Hag finds it challenging to apply his philosophy to Manchester United due to De Gea’s poor ball-handling skills.
But when numbers released this week revealed the club has the biggest wage bill in the Premier League, the club is now doubting De Gea’s future due to his wages.
With a base wage of roughly £ 350,000 per week, the Spaniard is the second-highest earner at the club, behind Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, De Gea’s performances have not been consistent with his position as one of the highest-paid football players in the world, and the former Atletico Madrid star has had a lackluster start to the season.
Juventus might try to recruit De Gea the next summer, claims Calcio Mercato. Paul Pogba, who was recently signed by the Italian club and was also a free agent, is the most recent example of the Italian club’s willingness to work with Manchester United.
De Gea’s contract expiring next summer makes it increasingly probable that he will leave the club for free at the end of the current campaign, even though in an ideal world Manchester United would be able to obtain a transfer fee for him.
De Gea has been outstanding for United for a long time, but as football changes into a sport in which goalkeepers must be elite with their feet, he is starting to have difficulty.
The Dutchman requires a goalkeeper with good footwork to counter the pressure of the opposition to play his style of football.
