Manchester United goalkeeper, David de Gea has shared a cryptic ‘yawning’ tweet as he faces exit after Erik ten Hag’s uncertainty over him sparked U-turn on his new contract.
The Spaniard, 32, has made 545 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils since joining for around £19million in summer 2011.
The Red Devils have been weighing up whether to offer him a new deal given his inconsistency and bumper £350,000-a-week wages.
Manager Erik ten Hag’s uncertainty over keeping him as No 1 sparked the club’s U-turn on his new contract, which expires in just 56 hours at the time of writing – leading to De Gea’s apparent outburst at the situation.
In what seems like a reference to the long-running contract saga, De Gea simply posted a yawning emoji on his Twitter page, suggesting that he is tired of the situation.
Earlier this month, a new contract aimed at reducing De Gea’s £375,000-a-week wage had been agreed between the player and the club, but Ten Hag’s uncertainty over keeping his No 1 had put the deal in jeopardy.
Reports emerged on Tuesday claiming that De Gea had signed the new contract before United backed out and then tabled an even lower offer.Share this story to friends
