- David de Gea is preparing to leave Manchester United at the end of the season
- De Gea, 30, is behind Dean Henderson in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future plans
- With two years on his contract, United de Gea will likely have to pay a massive amount
David de Gea will leave Manchester United at the end of the season with a big reward for leaving his contract early as Dean Henderson officially becomes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first goalkeeper.
According to The mirrorUnited are poised to say goodbye to 30-year-old De Gea and are looking to take his eye-watering £ 350,000 a week wages off their books.
With two years to go on his contract, every move the Red Devils make to relocate De Gea is likely to bring a significant payout to shorten his time at Old Trafford.

Once considered the best player in Manchester United’s roster and the club’s highest paid player, De Gea’s form has been under scrutiny over the past few seasons.
With Henderson recalled from a very successful rental with Sheffield United last season, and having signed a six-year £ 120,000 a week contract in August last year, Solskjaer is poised to hand him the No. 1 jersey next season.
The 24-year-old was ably replaced in De Gea’s absence after the Spaniard returned home last month for the birth of his child. Henderson kept three out in the Premier League, although he made the mistake that led to AC Milan’s equalizing goal at San Siro in the Europa League.
According to The Mirror, De Gea is the spearhead for an exodus of goalkeepers at Man United. Three other senior goalkeepers are expected to be fired at the end of the season.
Argentinian Sergio Romero has already been allowed to expire the remaining months of his contract in his home country, while third-choice Lee Grant and Joel Pereira, currently on loan to Huddersfield, will become free agents at the end of the season.
