PSG’s plan to sign Man United’s David de Gea for free – Express

David De Gea

As per a report from the Express, French giants Paris Saint-Germain hope to lure Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea to the club on a free transfer next summer.

David de Gea’s rise to stardom

28-year-old shot-stopper David de Gea made the move to Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

The Rojiblancos youth product initially struggled to settle, though, with many having questioned whether or not de Gea would be capable of fulfilling his unquestionable potential under the bright lights of one of world football’s biggest clubs.

However, the years since have seen the Madrid native do just that, and more.

De Gea has established himself as one of the finest goalkeepers on the planet over recent seasons, cementing his status as Manchester United’s most important player, as well as an ever-present between the posts for Spain.

De Gea’s struggles

But, with United having, to this point, largely failed to capitalize on their shot-stopper’s brilliance in terms of securing meaningful silverware, de Gea has inevitably been linked with a possible departure from Old Trafford over the last couple of seasons.

And the alarming dip in form suffered by the former Atletico man over the final months of the recently-finished 2018/19 season has since only seen the speculation surrounding his future move up a notch.

PSG’s plan

And, as per the aforementioned update from the Express this afternoon, one club keen to take advantage of the Spaniard’s increasingly-uncertain future in Manchester are Ligue 1 champions PSG.

After Paris United reported late last month that initial negotiations between the capital outfit and de Gea’s entourage had already begun, the Express today go a step further.

The PSG board are now said to have a plan in place to lure their no.1 goalkeeping target.

This involves coming to an agreement this summer, which would allow de Gea to remain at Old Trafford until the expiration of his contract in a year’s time.

At that point, the Spaniard would make the move to Paris on a free transfer.

Such a route would allow PSG to circumvent their Financial Fair Play restraints.

In addition, de Gea would reportedly be incentivized with a hefty signing-on fee, as a reward for keeping up his end of the deal.
