Revealed: David de Gea offered the European elite with a Man United exit for the summer after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made Dean Henderson No. 1 … with PSG, Real Madrid and Atletico wary
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who picked Dean Henderson on Sunday spoke volumes
- Henderson played a seventh game in a row between the sticks against Brighton
- And David de Gea could leave Old Trafford for £ 375,000 a week this summer
- PSG, Real Madrid and former club Atletico are all interested in the Spaniard
David De Gea is being offered to top European clubs by his representatives as the Spanish goalkeeper prepares to leave Manchester United this summer.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to keep Dean Henderson in goal on Sunday for a seventh consecutive game against Brighton has further questioned De Gea’s future at the club.
It’s clear that after a decade at Old Trafford, the 30-year-old is ready to spend time on his United career and that his camp is starting to gauge potential buyers.

No transfer fee has yet been mentioned – although United would want around £ 50 million – but De Gea’s £ 375,000 a week wages will be a stumbling block in the current economic climate.
Real Madrid, which came within minutes of De Gea’s signing in the summer of 2015, is likely to be interested again at the right price, while also consistently having been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Atletico Madrid, who sold De Gea to United for £ 18.9m in 2011, may also consider re-signing him if Jan Oblak leaves this summer.
De Gea appears to have lost his status as United’s number one to Henderson, even though Solskjaer says both keepers will have opportunities for the rest of the season.

It was understood when the United boss told England goalkeeper Henderson24 last month that he would be in goal for six games while De Gea was on paternity leave, the indication was that the Spaniard would play again after the international break.
Solskjaer now has to decide whether to recall De Gea when he returns to Spain for Thursday’s quarter-final against Granada in the Europa League.
If not, Henderson’s point on the team is extended to eight games.
