Fresh doubts cloud the future of David de Gea’s future at Manchester United as the Spanish goalkeeper was left out of the club’s list of retained players for the coming season.
The list which was released on Friday and includes Mason Greenwood shows the players under contract at Old Trafford as well as those being offered new deals.
De Gea’s omission suggests that negotiations over replacing his current £375,000-a-week contract are not as advanced as previously thought, and sources confirmed that United’s stance on the future of the player is now less optimistic.
A short club statement read: ‘Discussions remain open with David over a potential new contract.’
De Gea’s current deal runs out on June 30th when he would be able to walk away from Old Trafford as a free agent, ending a 12-year career at United.
He has been linked with a big-money move to Saudi Arabia.
