Negotiations opened between David de Gea’s camp and PSG – Paris United

As per a report from French outlet Paris United, talks between the entourage of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea and French giants PSG have been opened.

de Gea’s rise to stardom

28-year-old shot-stopper 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.

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 recent dip in form being suffered by the former Atletico man has only seen the speculation surrounding his future move up a notch.

PSG bound?

The last couple of days have seen reports throughout the English media suggest that United are already eyeing Jan Oblak as a potential successor to de Gea.

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

In fact, negotiations between the capital giants and de Gea’s camp are said to have been underway for several weeks.

And, though talks have not yet moved past the preliminary stage to this point, PSG are nevertheless said to be eyeing a cut-price deal for the United star come the end of the season, with de Gea’s current deal at Old Trafford set to expire next summer.
