Manchester United is ready to part with David de Gea after the end of the season, reports "The Mirror". The Red Devils have five goalkeepers on salary during the current campaign and have set out to reduce costs, starting with the release of some players.
De Gea currently receives a salary of 400,000 euros a week. He has two years left until the end of his contract, which means he must receive 40m euros gross.
The English club is ready to pay him compensation in order to terminate his contract prematurely.
Manchester United do not believe that any team will be willing to withdraw an amount of around 40-50 million euros to attract De Gea through the summer transfer window, in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is not the first time Manchester United have been forced to pay large monetary compensation to terminate their player's contract. The last such case was with Alexis Sanchez, when an agreement was reached with the Chilean to be paid more than 10 million euros net and to be released to sign with Inter.
Manchester United intend to bet on Dean Henderson as a titular goalkeeper next season. The young Englishman signed a new long-term contract with the club last summer.
