Mauricio Pochettino plots transfer for Manchester United’s De Gea

Mauricio Pochettino is plotting a move to bring David de Gea to PSG, according to The Sun.

It has been widely reported that Pochettino wants to replace Keylor Navas in his line-up this summer, with his former Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloirs recently linked with a move.

Reporter Alan Nixon claims that the French side’s head coach has had a change of heart and is now looking to sign De Gea.

The article states: ‘Poch has been linked with his old Spurs and France international keeper Hugo Lloris for some time but De Gera has been on PSG’s radar just as long.

‘However, the Spain keeper, who has just two years left on his United deal, has been unavailable in the past.

‘PSG are one of the few clubs around who could pick up De Gea’s £375,000-a-week wages AND offer a fee to interest Man Utd.’

De Gea is four years younger than Lloris, who is turning 35 this year so it makes much more sense to prioritise the United keeper.

Understudy Dean Henderson will hope he can impress in the Manchester derby today and show the manager that he’s ready to be considered first choice at Old Trafford.

The Spaniard is currently on paternity leave following the birth of his baby daughter.

It’s probably time to consider moving De Gea on because he’s earning savage money and I’m sure the board will look at that along with expectations for the coming years when the transfer window reopens.
