Paris Saint Germain is on everyone's lips, ahead of the next summer pass market, and in this case, it is again in the news for a star footballer who could come from the Premier League. David de Gea has been defending the Manchester United goal for ten seasons. A decade in which, although there have been the odd shadow, he has proven to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world at Old Trafford.
And it is that, today, ‘The Sun’ has reported that Paris Saint-Germain will go for the Spanish goalkeeper in the next transfer market. Mauricio Pochettino wants the signing of another high-level goalkeeper to replace Keylor Navas or to compete with him and, after Hugo Lloris' refusal, his eyes are settled on the good De Gea.
It is still unknown what PSG will do with Keylor Navas, who has always performed at a good level, but as happened in Madrid, he lacks that great goalkeeper charisma that coaches and sports directors like so much. That is why the Argentine coach has set his sights on the former Atlético de Madrid goalkeeper. At 30, its market value is around 20-25 million euros (via Transfermarkt).
The key to convincing the still Red Devil is, at least, equal the almost 20 millions that he has as his salary. Stratospheric figure that PSG can afford and that at United will be lowered in the coming years. With more than 430 games behind him, the ‘new Van der Sar’ has more than met expectations. Although in Spain he is labeled as irregular for his performances in the Spanish National Team, De Gea has always performed at a good level in the Premier League despite the fact that the 'Red Devils' have not had their best years.
The road may part and United may welcome its long-term march. They would get rid of a very high salary and Dean Henderson would be given the opportunity, who, at 23 years old, has much more career ahead of him than De Gea himself. Of course, it will be necessary to analyze, when he reaches thirty under the sticks of Old Trafford, if he has really managed to make forget the records and the performances of the Spanish goalkeeper.
