After Nick Pope’s injury setback, David de Gea, the former goalkeeper for Manchester United, is eager to join Newcastle United.
The Magpies’ number one sustained a dislocated shoulder during Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Erik ten Hag’s team. The 31-year-old will require surgery, and it is expected that he will be sidelined for at least four months.
Against United, Martin Dubravka entered the game late to replace Pope, with Loris Karius standing by as a backup. De Gea is one goalie Newcastle is contemplating, but they are also seriously considering adding another.
After spending 12 years at Old Trafford, United dismissed the Spaniard in the summer, and he is still a free agent. The 33-year-old has been training frequently, and he is reportedly keen on joining Newcastle, according to multiple reports from ESPN.
Aaron Ramsdale of Arsenal has also been connected to the transfer to Tyneside, with the Gunners goalkeeper seeming amenable to the arrangement.
The England international, who will be keen to play for the first squad next summer with Euro 2024 looming large, has lost his spot in Mikel Arteta’s starting XI to David Raya this season.
Erik ten Hag is anxious to prevent Jadon Sancho from making a “empty gesture,” therefore Manchester United is apparently willing to accept a “significant loss” on him.
Sancho has a disruptive impact on the rest of United’s team, according to manager Ten Hag, who is determined to get rid of the winger.
This season, Sancho and Ten Hag had a nasty falling out, with the Dutchman publicly criticizing his player in the media for his lack of effort in practice. After spending £73 million on him in 2021, United is now willing to suffer a “significant loss” on the player in the January transfer window.
