David de Gea is ready to be on his way out of Man United in the upcoming transfer window, despite a goalkeeping exodus at the Theatre of Dreams.
The Spain international is one of the longest-serving members in the current Red Devils squad, having been at the Old Trafford since 2011 when he arrived from Atletico Madrid.
Having had starting troubles in England, de Gea would go on to become one of the best in the business in the PL as well as in Europe during his time at Man United. However, over the past couple of years, David has made a string of errors that have hurt his credibility.
That, coupled with the emergence of Henderson as an option following his starring campaign on loan at Sheffield United last time out meant that the 30-year-old goalkeeper was under pressure heading into the 2020/21 season.
While the Norwegian manager stuck by the Spanish shot-stopper for large parts of the season, Dean recently got an extended run in the side when David was away on paternity leave. And Henderson has made the most of his chances, as he was preferred over David in Red Devils 2-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on the weekend.
Sergio Romero, Lee Grant, and Joel Pereira (on loan at Huddersfield Town) will all see their deals expire at the end of the campaign and expected to be on their way out. However, de Gea, who is one of the Red Devils’ top earners at £350,000-a-week, will still have two years left on his deal when the current season finishes.
