According to the latest report, David de Gea is on the list of potential departing Manchester United players. It’s time to replace them with younger options who are better suited to the football Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants his team to play.
It is reported that De Gea is poised to leave Old Trafford this summer, with Henderson being a ready-made replacement.
The Spaniard has been a superb servant to United down the years, but his performances have dipped and it’s time to give the number one jersey to Henderson who looks ready for the extra responsibility of being United’s first-choice goalkeeper.
De Gea doesn’t even start for Spain anymore which I’m sure comes as a blow to the player. He would still make a fantastic goalkeeper for most of Europe’s top clubs.
Simon Mullock writes on Mirror: “Manchester United will have to hand top earner David De Gea a bank-busting pay-off when he leads a huge keeper clear-out at Old Trafford in the summer.”

“De Gea, 30, is set to become surplus to requirements as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer puts his faith in Dean Henderson as his No.1.”
“But the Spain keeper will still have two years left on his £350,000-a-week deal – and the Reds must cough up a large slice of that £36.4million contract to get him off the wage bill.”
“United are currently spending a staggering £570,000 a week on five senior goalkeepers – and the club’s American owners want that slashed”
