Manchester United are allegedly ready to cough up a mammoth chun of David de Gea’s wages as they hope to offload the Spanish shot-plug this mid year.
De Gea’s number one jersey is under danger from the best in class Dean Henderson, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has asserted that he will proceed to hack and change his goalkeepers for the rest of the campaign.
The former Atletico Madrid man has to a great extent kept Henderson out of the team in the Premier League this season, but with the latter’s development understood to be a priority for United chiefs, De Gea could supposedly be moved on in the summer.

However, De Gea still has two years left on his United contract, and The Mirror claims that the Red Devils will have to fork out a hefty chunk of his remaining £350k-a-week wages to get him off the books this summer.
The report adds that three other shot-stoppers in Sergio Romero, Lee Grant and Joel Pereira could follow De Gea out of the exit door this summer, as the powers-that-be at United are desperate to trim their wage bill in between the sticks.
De Gea, who is thought to be valued at £50m by United, has been linked with a return to Atletico and a move across the channel to Paris Saint-Germain if his time at Old Trafford does come to an end this summer.
