Manchester United are considering selling David de Gea in the summer.
This is despite the fact that the Spanish international only signed a new long-term deal with them last September which will keep him at Old Trafford until 2023.
The reason for the apparent change of stance is that United are planning a substantial rebuild of their squad in the summer, and selling de Gea, who, in the past has attracted interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona, could generate substantial funds to boost Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s transfer coffers.
Another issue to be factored into the equation is the fate of on-loan goalkeeper Dean Henderson at Sheffield United. He has been one of the stand-out keepers in the Premier League, having kept the joint most number of clean sheets this season with Alisson Becker.
He is due to return to Old Trafford at the end of the season and is unlikely to be happy playing second fiddle to de Gea and sitting on the bench next campaign.
