PSG have reportedly hatched a plan in order to get their hands on Manchester United’s main man David de Gea.
The Spaniard is arguably their only world-class player and so to lose him to the French champions would be hugely damaging.
The goalkeeper, despite his recent errors, has largely been their most consistent performer since Sir Alex Ferguson‘s retirement.
United, who are said to be plotting a squad overhaul this summer, simply can do without the distraction of having to replace De Gea when other areas of the pitch are more in need of attention.
Unfortunately, the club have allowed the former Atletico Madrid man’s contract to enter it’s final year and negotiations so far have not had a breakthrough.
According to the Express, PSG are planning on convincing David to see out his contract with the Red Devils and will move to sign him on a pre-contract next January.
The Ligue 1 giant should be capable of offering the 28 year old the wages it’s believed he’s looking for at Old Trafford and so he may be tempted by their suggestion.
Losing De Gea is bad enough but to not make any money out of the deal in order to reinvest it in a replacement is even worse.
