David de Gea determined to stay and fight for No.1 role at Manchester United

Yesterday we brought you a story on Dean Henderson’s future, with the Manchester United youth team graduate told the club want him to stay next season to diminish any doubts he may have had after being overlooked in the Europa League final defeat against Villarreal.

Anyhow, the less said about that night in Gdansk the better.

ESPN claim United have yet to receive any concrete interest in the 30-year-old, who, let’s face it, is going to be a risk for any buying club – especially when he is currently the highest paid goalkeeper in the world.

De Gea still has two years and a 12-month extension option – and it has been suggested to Stretty News by sources in the past that the only way out of Old Trafford this summer would be on an Alexis Sanchez-esque loan deal.

The report adds that De Gea is determined to fight for his place as No.1 at Manchester United – but we are sure Henderson will have something to say about that.

On a serious note, it is unsustainable to go into another season not knowing who to pick from two goalkeepers, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows that.

I expected a decision this summer but the hint from this report is that United now have an opportunity to dance around it for another year, all while De Gea remains the highest paid keeper in the world…

Far from ideal.
