An era has ended for Manchester United with the possible departure of David de Gea. The Red Devils have told the Spanish goalkeeper that he is no longer in Erik ten Hag's plans and will have to find a new home for next season, whether it is the Premier League or another territory that could offer an incredible deal for his services. He still has the strength to fight for a starting place with other goalkeepers, but away from Old Trafford.

There are plenty of young goalkeepers on the summer market, but few could withstand the pressure of United fans. Remember that few were successful and remembered as legends. Cases like Peter Schmeichel or Edwin Van der Saar won the affection of the fans, who are very fickle with players when they have blunders. Perhaps that is why De Gea was never as loved as the latter, because at crucial moments he never reacted in the best way, against the desire of the fans.

In addition, the Old Trafford outfit are looking to bring in top players after Sheikh Jassim bought the Glazer family's £6 billion-plus club, which will be a significant influx of cash, and are already targeting world-class star Neymar Jr, who is no longer happy at Paris Saint-Germain and is looking to move to the Premier League with the Red Devils.

Ten Hag has reportedly found his ideal goalkeeper in the Premier League. The situation will be difficult, as there is another english club that also wants him, and would be fighting to convince the player with their sporting project. But the economic capacity of United with this new directive could give them the lead in this race.

Who is the goalkeeper United want?

Sky Sports reported that David Raya is being sought by Manchester United to replace David de Gea. Tottenham have a pre-agreement with Brentford for the goalkeeper, but they are not willing to pay the 40 million they are asking for his transfer, so the Red Devils would enter the game paying that amount and be the new keeper of the Old Trafford goal.
