David De Gea is on the brink of rejecting Manchester United’s deal offer and departing from Old Trafford on a free transfer next summer, according to the reports.
The Spain international’s current contract expires at the end of the current campaign, however, despite holding extensive contract talks with the Red Devils, an agreement over a new contract has not yet been reached.
The Red Devils have offered Spanish keeper a deal worth £350,000 per week, which would make him the highest-paid stopper in the world.
However, according to The Sun, Spaniard has told friends he is ‘willing to snub’ the Red Devils offer and his Spain teammates feel that the 28-year-old goalkeeper could stall until the January transfer window, at which point he would be free to negotiate with teams outside of the English top-tier.
The 20-times English champions had an agreement in principle with the Spanish keeper this summer. However, the Spaniard has not yet signed the contract.
The report also suggested that the Red Devils have now been left with the impression that David De Gea will listen to offers from top teams in January.
Elsewhere, reports have suggested that Serie A champions want to open contract talks with De Gea with a view to signing on a free transfer next summer.
De Gea is currently with Spain’s national team however, has been on the bench with Kepa Arizabalaga has been the no.1 stopper in Spain at the moment.
