Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is wanted by both Juventus and Paris St-Germain and they could pay up to £75 million for him, according to reports. 

De Gea has established himself as one of the world’s leading goalkeepers at United in recent years, and the club has previously fended off advances from Real Madrid for him.

However, he has shown no signs of wanting a new contract at United. The club can trigger a year’s extension to the deal, which would take him to summer 2020, but United’s bosses may decide to cash in on him instead.

The Sun has reported PSG’s interest, although any move for the Spaniard may depend on UEFA’s upcoming ruling on whether the club broke Financial Fair Play rules. If they are found guilty, they could face curbs on their transfer activity.

Meanwhile Juventus are also said to be interested. They are in the process of an expensive squad overhaul – including the £99 million purchase of Cristiano Ronaldo – as the club seek to win the Champions League.

Juve could see de Gea as part of that jigsaw. Also, thanks to a new rule this season, if he were to move in January, de Gea wouldn’t be cup-tied in the competition.
