Paper Talk: Huge concern for Man Utd as lucrative offer attracts De Gea

Date published: Saturday 27th April 2019 9:26

Manchester United have mounting fears that David De Gea will look to quit the club this summer, while one of the Championship’s best players will “probably” join Tottenham this summer, according to Saturday’s newspapers.



PSG will make a £60m transfer bid for David De Gea with Manchester United believing the Spaniard’s head has been turned.

That’s according to The Sun, who claims the Spanish goalkeeper will refuse to sign an extended contract with United this summer in a bid to force the move to the Ligue 1 giants.

De Gea, who has endured a poor season by his own high standards, still remains the first name on the United teamsheet and is arguably the only player at the club to have ‘credit in the bank’ thanks to several incredible seasons at Old Trafford.

But with his contract due to expire in the summer of 2020, United fear the clock is ticking on De Gea’s time at Old Trafford and he could look to force their hand by refusing to sign a new deal.

And with United facing a battle to secure Champions League football next season, the paper claims De Gea is ‘highly tempted’ by the project and the financial package on offer in Paris and has ‘had his head turned’ by their incoming approach.

United are unlikely to accept PSG’s £60m offer, but with just 12 months left on his deal come the summer, they may have little choice but to cash in.
