David De Gea has played more minutes in the Premier League this season than any other United player, but Manchester United has no plans to extend his contract.
De Gea has received criticism in recent years for failing to adjust to the new game. De Gea has, however, demonstrated significant progress under Erik ten Hag, particularly in his ability to play the ball.
Manchester United must decide on De Gea’s future because his contract expires at the end of the current campaign; otherwise, they risƙ losing him on a free transfer.
Florian Plettenberg, a writer, claims that United do not want to use the option to renew De Gea’s contract because Ten Hag is seeking to add a new starting goalkeeper.

Financially, it doesn’t make much sense to not offer De Gea a new contract, even for a single year. Allowing De Gea to depart on a free transfer would cost them potentially billions of dollars because he is still a valuable player.
Following this revelation, it will be intriguing to see if De Gea looks for a new job in January or waits until the summer, when he is sure to have plenty of suitors.
