David De Gea set to reject Man Utd offer and leave for free – Metro.co.uk

David De Gea is on the verge of rejecting Manchester United’s contract offer and leaving Old Trafford on a free transfer next summer, according to reports.

The Spain international’s current deal expires at the end of the season but despite holding extensive talks with United, an agreement over a new deal has not yet been reached.

United have offered De Gea a deal worth £350,000 a week, which would make him the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world.

But according to The Sun, De Gea has told friends he is ‘willing to snub’ United’s offer and his Spain teammates feel that the 28-year-old could stall until January, at which point he would be free to negotiate with teams outside of the Premier League.

United had an agreement in principle with De Gea this summer but the Spaniard has not yet signed the deal.

The report also claims that United have now been left with the impression that De Gea will listen to offers in January.

Elsewhere, reports have claimed that Juventus want to open contract talks with De Gea with a view to signing him on a free transfer next summer.

De Gea is currently with Spain’s national team but was overlooked on Thursday night as Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga started ahead of him in the 2-1 win over Romania.
