David de Gea preparing to leave Man United after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer snub

Published

on

David de Gea is reportedly preparing to leave Manchester United after Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer put his faith in rival goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

Henderson started a seventh game in a row against Brighton on Sunday to cast further doubt on De Gea’s future at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer has insisted that both goalkeepers will feature for the club during the final stages of the season but it is unlikely that both Henderson and De Gea will still be at Manchester United next year.

With Henderson currently ahead of De Gea in the pecking order – and six years younger than the Spain international – he will likely be viewed as the club’s long-term No. 1.

It seems inconceivable for De Gea, who is still considered one of the best goalkeepers in Europe, to settle for a more limited role at Old Trafford, and MailSport say he is ready to call time on his United career.

The 30-year-old has been at Manchester United for almost a decade but is number being offered to some of Europe’s top clubs by his representatives.

Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and his former club Atletico Madrid have all been linked with moves for De Gea, who will likely attract an offer in the region of £40million.

Speaking ahead of Manchester United’s victory over Brighton on Sunday, former captain Rio Ferdinand said he expected De Gea to leave if Henderson retained his place in the side over the next two months.

He said: ‘If Dean Henderson finishes the season as number one, I don’t see De Gea staying there. No chance, I don’t see it. I think he’ll go out now.

‘His wages will be a determining factor but at the end of the day, two number ones doesn’t work. De Gea has been a mainstay in the team but Ole is maybe seeing things differently now.

‘He’s put Henderson in front of him in the queue. Does De Gea accept that and stay? I don’t think so.

‘Henderson has been waiting for this opportunity. Now the pressure is on him. Can he live up to the hype? I’m excited for him and looking forward to see what he can do.

‘Solskjaer has seen something in him but he has to perform now. It’s okay being number one at Sheffield United, but it’s a different kettle of fish at Manchester United.

‘David will be supporting his team-mate but when he gets home tonight, his pride and ego will be hurting, and if it’s not, he shouldn’t be here. He’s in the prime of his career and he wants to play every week.’

ARSENAL are putting together a shortlist reportedly including  Moussa Dembele as part of their summer overhaul.

Mikel Arteta has hinted at a very busy transfer window at the Emirates following a disappointing campaign.

Last night, SunSport revealed that Hector Bellerin is among the stars on the chopping block.

 

And Alexandre Lacazette, Matteo Guendouzi, David Luiz and more are being prepared for a move.

 

According to the Telegraph, French striker Lacazette could be joined by Eddie Nketiah in leaving this summer, with two stars eyed as replacements.

 

Lyon forward Dembele, 24, has spent the second half of the season on loan at Atletico Madrid but is yet to score for the LaLiga leaders.

 

Still yet to start for his new club, the Frenchman can move for a pre-agreed £30million fee in the summer but his poor form and fitness issues make that an increasingly unlikely option.

Dembele remains under contract at Lyon for another two years yet is reportedly available for around £25m should Atleti let him go.

A slightly cheaper option, at around £15m to £20m, is said to be Celtic star Edouard.

The SPFL runners-up may seek to cash in on the 23-year-old ahead of his contract expiring in 2022.

The striker has hit 21 goals in all competitions for the Glasgow outfit this season.

 

But any Arsenal approach may come up against fierce competition from Leicester, who are also thought to be keen and are set to be able to offer Champions League football next season.

 

The Gunners maintain an outside shot at a Europa League or Europa Conference League finish and travel to high-flying Chelsea on Wednesday.

Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi, Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

 

Many other players also face an uncertain future and could be sold to cut the wage bill or generate funds for transfers, these are;

 

Alex Runarsson, David Luiz, Joe Willock, Alexandre Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson and Mohamed Elneny.

 

Arsenal’s budget for the transfer window remains unknown but it is likely to be a low budget that will depend on player sales and revenue earnings from competitions, unless the Kroenke’s finally decide to make some cash available for transfers as a result of pressure from the fanbase,

Bernd Leno breaks silence concerning Arsenal future amid talk of summer transfer

Published

on

Bernd Leno has insisted he is still happy at Arsenal despite reports he could leave this summer.

The German goalkeeper has impressed in north London, so much so that Mikel Arteta backed him and sold Emiliano Martinez last summer despite the Argentine impressing last season.

 

But football.london understands Leno is open to leaving Arsenal this summer with the club willing to sell him for the right price. It comes with a number of young prospects in the wings, including Arthur Okonkwo, who is set for a new deal amid interest from a number of top clubs around Europe.

 

The Gunners are also looking at signing loan keeper Mat Ryan on a permanent deal with Alex Runarsson likely to leave on a loan deal ahead of next season

Leno is currently the Gunners’ number one, so it’s not clear who would replace him, but it’s understood Arsenal are open to selling him, even if the player himself does not seem keen to depart.

 

“I am still happy at Arsenal. Arsenal is still a big club, a big name in the world and in the Premier League,” Leno told Sky Sports.

There is nobody in the dressing room who says ‘I want to leave the club, I am not happy here anymore’.

“We still have a good environment at the club and in the dressing room. Of course, at times it was not easy this season, but this is part of football.

It’s not good to feel sorry for ourselves, we need to move forward and change it to a positive as soon as possible.”

 

Arsenal may just shift a number of players who don’t necessarily want to leave this summer with Mikel Arteta clearly needing to improve his squad on the back of a disappointing campaign which will see the Gunners miss out on European football for the first time in 25 years.

 

Leno could be part of that list of outgoings, currently valued at £22.5million by Transfermarkt with his contract due to run until 2023
