David De Gea is planning showdown talks with Erik ten Hag about his Manchester United future.
De Gea fears his time at Old Trafford might be coming to an end and is keen to find out if he is still part of Ten Hag’s long-term plans.
The Spanish goalkeeper will be out of contract at the end of this season and will become a free agent.
United have an option to trigger a 12-month extension in De Gea’s £300,000-a-week deal but are said to be stalling, leaving the 31-year-old in limbo.
De Gea joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and is currently the longest-serving star at Old Trafford, having won seven major trophies with the fallen giants.
He signed a new long-term deal in 2019 that made him the highest paid keeper in world football.
United bosses are keeping close tabs on Atletico star Jan Oblak, who will also be available on a free transfer next June should he not agree new terms with the Spanish giants.
Oblak, 29, has won three titles with Atletico and is regarded as a viable alternative to De Gea, should Ten Hag decide to let him leave Old Trafford.
De Gea will turn 32 in November before he heads to the World Cup with Spain – and knows it could be the perfect shop window for him to find a new club.\
He came close to joining Real Madrid in 2015 but the move collapsed at the 11th hour, although De Gea still favours a return to his homeland to see out what’s left of his career.
