European giants add David De Gea to goalkeeping shortlist

Posted by

David De Gea has reportedly been included on Bayern Munich’s summer goalkeeping shortlist.

That’s according to a recent report from BILD, who claim the Spaniard is a candidate to replace the outgoing Yann Sommer.

Having decided against renewing his contract with Manchester United earlier in the summer, De Gea, 32, is now a free agent and eligible to negotiate a contract with any club in the world.

Although likely to have suitors in the lucrative Saudi Pro League, the pull of European football could be too much for De Gea to turn down, especially as the former Manchester United number one still feels he has a lot to offer.

Consequently, with Bayern Munich the latest club to express their interest in the experienced 32-year-old, it could just be a matter of time before fans see the Old Trafford legend turn out in different colours.

During his 12 years with Manchester United, De Gea, who has also represented Spain on 45 occasions, kept 190 clean sheets in 545 appearances in all competitions.

  1. Let’s not tell lies, David De Gea did not decide against renewing his contract with Manchester United earlier in the summer but rather, Man Utd did not renew his contract. Instead, the Club wanted him out.

    1. That’s rubbish as the manager always spoke very highly of him and I thing it was De Gea who would not accept there terms, it’s the biggest mistake they have done, I watched all Utd games and his saves where at times extraordinary and the stats show that, just our manager wants to play this pathetic Man City style from the back crap and its not how Utd should be playing

    2. Correction they wanted him to take more than a 50% pay cut which he didn’t want as they already took it done by like 20% so get your facts straight

  2. They didn’t push him out, the manager loved him. You lot don’t realise that the club had to stop paying stupid wages and that’s why they wanted him to take a cut, to help the club but he didn’t want to do that which left United no other choice but to let him go, anybody can see that, only people that can’t are ABU fans. De gea was amazing and a united legend and no united fan would be upset if he went to Bayern Munich. The club is being redone by ten hag and has the full backing by true fans. GGMU
