According to The Mirror, David de Gea is set to leave Manchester United at the end of the season with a big pay-off to cut his contract early with Dean Henderson set to become Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first choice goal-keeper.
The 30 year old will still have two years left on his £350,000-a-week deal – and Manchester United must cough up a large slice of that £36.4million contract to get him off the wage bill.
Manchester United are currently spending a staggering £570,000 a week on five senior goalkeepers and the board wants that slashed this summer.
Henderson earns £100,000 a week while Sergio Romero earns £70,000 weekly. Third-choice Lee Grant, 38, and Joel Pereira, 24, are on £30,000 a week and £20,000 a week respectively and will also become free agents at the end of the season.
