Manchester United could wait until the summer to offer David de Gea a new Manchester United deal, as the club are prioritising sorting out Radamel Falcao’s contract first – as officials ponder whether or not they should take ‘El Tigre’ on a long-term contract.
The news comes from the usually reliable Mark Ogden of the Telegraph, and its quite a concern that if true, United are prepared to risk losing David de Gea for little or no fee.
De Gea has just eighteen months left on his current deal, and if the club don’t sort out a new contract before the summer, he’ll be into his final year and if the Spanish keeper lets that expire, they’ll be no fee whatsoever coming our way.
This June is make or break time for David de Gea. If he doesn’t sign a new contract before then, its pretty much inevitable he’ll be leaving the club for pastures new. You’d think that United would sell him this summer so they recoup some form of transfer fee for the 24-year old, but as of right now, things aren’t looking good.
It seems silly that a club of United’s stature cannot have two deals going simultaneously, but both Falcao and De Gea have the same agent so that may be holding up proceedings.
