David de Gea Next Club Odds: Saudi Arabian club favourites for goalkeeper

After David de Gea’s exit from Manchester United was finally confirmed, we’ve priced up his next club, with a potential exit from Europe on the cards.

Part of the reason De Gea’s departure was so protracted was due to the lack of potential suitors for the Spaniard.

United manager Erik ten Hag publicly claimed he wanted to keep the Spaniard at the club, but reading between the lines, it was presumably to prevent clubs from increasing their asking price for more fitting goalkeepers, which the Red Devils have sorely needed for some time.

The 32-year-old is still capable of miraculous saves, but for a team looking to build from the back, De Gea isn’t the keeper United need.

The issue for De Gea is that most top clubs want to play a style of football that relies on their goalkeeper’s footballing ability, and considering the wages he was on at United, it doesn’t leave an obvious destination.

A reunion with Atletico Madrid may be on the cards, but even then, De Gea would only serve as back-up to Jan Oblak. 

De Gea broke through into the Atleti first team as a teenager, establishing himself as first choice by the end of the 2009/10 season in which Los Rojiblancos won the Europa League, beating Fulham in the final.

His performances were good enough the following season to attract interest from Manchester United, where he would move in 2011 to replace Edwin van der Sar. 

Inter, who look set to lose keeper Andre Onana to Manchester United, will be after a new #1 having released Samir Handanovic at the end of his contract, though De Gea isn’t thought to be a target at the moment.

It means there’s every chance De Gea leaves Europe altogether.

While the two-time Europa League winner probably feels he still has the ability to be a regular for a top European side having been Manchester United’s first choice for a decade, most of the top clubs already have solid goalkeepers.

As such, Any Saudi Arabian Club are Evs favourites in the market and appear to be De Gea’s most likely destination.
