Man United accused for doing nothing in David De Gea renewal talks

Man United & David De Gea

The Sunday Times have made a remarkable statement regarding David De Gea’s ongoing Man United future.

De Gea struggled to impress last weekend at the Camp Nou in the Champions League.

Barcelona beat the Spanish keeper three times with goal from outside the box.

However there are few who fail to recognise just how good De Gea is.

Man United’s best player? Very possibly.

De Gea’s contract at Old Trafford expires at the end of next season, and rumours have been rife for months, if not years, about clubs trying to poach the goalie.

Against that backdrop, the Sunday Times accuse Man United of backing away from contract talks with their number #1.

Man United accused for doing nothing

Journalist Duncan Castles has revealed the following in the broadsheet:

Manchester United have made no effort to reopen contract negotiations with David De Gea, who is said to be growing increasingly frustrated with the club’s refusal to meet his long-standing request for a pay rise.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t seem impressed with how the club have handled De Gea’s contract talks.

Indeed, the Sunday Times reveal OGS is trying to break the stand-off between the player and the club:

Solskjaer has attempted to intervene in the contract stand-off, United’s recently appointed manager assuring De Gea that he is central to his plans going forward and that he would ask the club to resolve the impasse. Improved terms, however, have yet to be offered.

De Gea is thought to be after the same wages as Alexis Sanchez gets. Thats close to half a million pounds a week.

Juventus, Real Madrid and PSG are name-dropped as suitors for De Gea in the event he comes on the market.

But could those clubs meet the wages De Gea is chasing? That’s highly doubtful.
