Goalkeeper David De Gea according to reports is set to make a move to the rivals of Man United in the premier league as a free agent.
The Spanish goalkeeper who has been available on a free transfer since the start of the 2023/2024 season, and is said to be poised to join Newcastle United in the premier league by January 2024. David De Gea who has been without a club since June 2023, according to reports has been viewed as a replacement for Nick Pope who sustained an injury in the premier league fixture against Manchester United.
According to Daily Mail UK, De Gea is considering taking a pay cut to make the move to St. james Park with Nick Pope being possible out for a long time after dislocating his shoulders.
Daily Mail stated,
“Newcastle are considering their options, including a possible move for free agent David de Gea, as they await the results of scans on Nick Pope’s shoulder injury. Pope is facing a lengthy lay-off, with an operation currently considered the most likely course of action amid an expected absence of around four months, after he was forced off late on in Newcastle’s 1-0 win over Manchester United with a repeat of the dislocated shoulder problem he suffered while at Burnley. He would have obvious appeal given his pedigree, immediate availability and the fact he would not require a transfer fee. Though he was on £375,000-per-week during his final contract at Manchester United and would have to accept lower to fit in with their wage structure if Newcastle were to make a firm move for him. Former Newcastle No.1 Martin Dubravka came on to replace Pope against Manchester United where he had a brief loan spell last season.”
