Manchester United fans issue transfer demand to David de Gea after social media post

David de Gea has celebrated a decade with Manchester United and fans have issued the goalkeeper with a message.


Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has received a transfer message from supporters, after he celebrated his 10-year anniversary with the club.

The Spaniard has spent a decade as United's first-choice goalkeeper, winning a number of trophies and awards during his years between the sticks.

However, the most recent campaign has brought vast competition for the experienced goalkeeper as Dean Henderson has been vying for his number one jersey.

Having had time off due to paternity leave, De Gea found himself beneath Henderson in the running but impressive performances in the club's run to the Europa League final may have altered the picture once more.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces a stern task this summer when deciding his first-choice goalkeeper, with the keeper seemed 'second choice' likely to seek a transfer exit.

That could bring an end to De Gea's lengthy stint with United and a return to Spanish football, where he previously played for Atletico Madrid, has been touted.

However, responding to De Gea's celebrations of a decade with United on social media, many fans made it clear they do not want to see him depart.

De Gea is currently on duty with Spain at the European Championships, where he is second-choice to Athletic Bilbao stopper Unai Simon.

The future of De Gea and Henderson is likely to be resolved after Euro 2020 draws to a close, with a decision needing to be made ahead of next season.

Henderson was forced to withdraw from England's squad for the tournament due to injury.
