Mourinho fears De Gea departure

REPORTS both claim that Manchester United and Jose Mourinho are worried that they could lose David De Gea on a free to Juventus.

According to Mirror reports, United fear De Gea will not sign a new deal and will leave instead, and Juventus have emerged as a leading candidate.

De Gea’s contract is up at the end of the season and the reports claim Juventus will wait even if United take up their option to extend it by one year.

From United’s perspective, this would be an absolute catastrophe. De Gea is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, if not the best, and to lose him on a free would be a disaster. For Juventus, it would be a dream signing, and perhaps their best free transfer swoop. Even if they have to act and sign him at a cut-price fee it would be excellent.

The Mirror with yet another report says that Alexis Sanchez wants out of Manchester United. Sanchez only joined United in January, but he is reportedly unhappy amid criticism of his performances. Sanchez’s representatives have sounded out PSG over a potential move, with the French club one of the few across Europe who could afford his wages.

Losing both Sanchez and De Gea soon after one another would not be a great look for United. It does not seem that long ago that United were being heralded for pipping rivals Manchester City to the signing of the Chilean. The move simply has not worked out and perhaps it would be better for United to cut their losses. – MirrorOnline
