According to a report from The Guardian, as cited by Football365, David De Gea is moving closer to the possibility of retiring from professional football following his departure from Manchester United as a free agent this summer.
Notably, De Gea’s decision is not driven by financial concerns, as he has already turned down several lucrative offers from clubs in Saudi Arabia. Instead, the Spanish goalkeeper’s primary preference is to secure a role as the undisputed first-choice goalkeeper at a prominent European club.
However, such an opportunity does not currently appear to be on the horizon.
If De Gea fails to find a suitable club that meets his aspirations, he is contemplating the idea of ending his career in football.
The report also highlights that De Gea continues to harbor feelings of disappointment regarding the circumstances of his departure from Manchester United.
