ESPN has reported that Manchester United may be open to allowing goalkeeper David de Gea to leave Old Trafford in the summer. De Gea is regarded as a good shot-stopper but his continuing mistakes in goal have led the club to lose patience.
De Gea's latest criticism has come during the Tottenham match as the keeper was blamed for Clint Dempsey's equalizing goal. The Spaniard came out and flailed at a cross that caused the ball to land at Aaron Lennon's feet where the Englishman put in a cross to Dempsey who tapped home. This was not the first instance of de Gea making mistakes such as this and he has often struggled with crosses in front of the goal mouth.
ESPN are now reporting that United will be open to offers for de Gea but not until the summer transfer window. United also point to problems that de Gea has had adjusting to life in England as well as the English game. Despite de Gea's obvious flaws, reports have suggested that there are teams who may be interested in signing the Spanish goalkeeper including Real Madrid.Tags: David de Gea, ESPN, Goalkeeper, Manchester, Manchester United, Premier League, Soccer, Tottenham
