Manchester United star David De Gea’s previous mentor says it is ‘justifiable’ he might look clear out
DAVID DE GEA’s former coach believes the reason the shot-stopper could leave Old Trafford is all to do with needing Champions League achievement.
The Spain international has achieved a whole host of success during his career, but so far he can’t flaunt lifting the Champions League.
Manchester United are still currently in the Champions League, on account of their emotional prevail upon Juventus.
In any case, Eric Steele, who was De Gea’s previous United tutor, thinks the attendant has his eye on the prize and is thinking about proceeding onward toward the finish of the season with the season in order to be in for a better chance of lifting the trophy.
Speaking to the Goalkeepers’ Union podcast, Steele said: « In the event that you ask David now, he is completely dedicated to Manchester United.
« He has a fantastic rapport with the players, the fans, but he wants to be a winner and inevitably he might look at his pathway now and think ‘will I get that at Manchester United’ surely right now they are still in the Champions League.
« But he sees other clubs getting bigger and stronger, it is winding up more aggressive.
« And he is now 28, is coming into his prime years so it is understandable that he may be looking.
« But until somebody tells me he is leaving I figure he will be completely dedicated.
« Long may David stay in the Premier League and long may he continue but you would understand why if he wants to win that ultimate prize. The one thing that he’s missing is he needs to win that Champions League.
Jose Mourinho is now also fearful that he could end up losing David De Gea on an allowed to Juventus on the off chance that they don’t act soon.
The Italian giants have become the masters of snapping up talent for nothing and they could well tempt the world class shot stopper to join them.
