In recent weeks we’ve discussed the long-term future of David de Gea.
The possibility of the Spaniard leaving has, in my view, increased dramatically.
The days of Real Madrid looking to sign the 28-year-old may have gone but de Gea appears to be engineering his own departure with his excessive pay demands in relation to signing a new deal.
As a result, the French outfit Paris Saint-Germain have emerged as the favourites to secure his services.
But, according to the media vehicle, the Express, Paris Saint-Germain are set to go about acquiring de Gea in something of a sneaky fashion.
With the French club wary of the Financial Fair Play Regulations, they’ve hatched a plot where they want de Gea to remain at Old Trafford for another season, following which the Spaniard will then be a free agent.
Paris Saint-Germain will then offer de Gea a massive signing on fee and a salary to match, knowing they will have saved £60 million on a transfer fee.
However, I can’t see Manchester United being so gullible, can you?
Surely, faced with such a sneaky plan, the club would prefer to lose de Gea now, quite probably to the highest bidder.
