Former Manchester United David de Gea is surprisingly still a free agent, but it isn’t because of a lack of offers. Reportedly, de Gea is taking a patient approach and considering various options, one of which could be a move to Major League Soccer.
According to English media outlet The Sun, de Gea currently has an offer on the table from Saudi Arabia side Al Nassr that would see him earn more than £500,000-a-week in salary. However, the player isn’t keen on the move and would rather join Inter Miami.
De Gea is believed to be attracted to Miami for several reasons. Besides the opportunity to live in the United States and be a part of the rising league, he would also get to play with familiar faces in fellow former Spain national team members Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.
There are several other clubs, however, that could provide Inter Miami a tough competition for de Gea’s services. This includes La Liga’s Valencia and Manchester United, who would be interested in a short-term deal with their former goalkeeper as their current No. 1, Andre Onana, plans to play at the Africa Cup of Nations.
David de Gea ended his 12-year stint with Manchester United after his contract expired this past summer. He played 545 games with the club and was part of the team that won the club’s most recent Premier League title in 2012–13.
