David de Gea is at a crossroads. Nearing his 33rd birthday and without a team, the goalkeeper is evaluating his options. He left Manchester United on June 30 after his contract was not renewed, and is considering the option of retiring, according to the Guardian and confirmed by MARCA… but it does not seem to be something imminent.
The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper has not received any offer from a top club that convinces him. The Spanish international has received offers from clubs in Saudi Arabia, among others, but has not accepted. He considers that the economic aspect is not now the main thing in his assessment to choose a new club. As the British media outlet explains and we have been able to confirm, he will retire unless he receives an offer soon from a major European club to be the first-choice goalkeeper.
But it’s going to take its time. At least until the end of the year. He is in no hurry and is still in shape, training to be ready if he receives the right offer.
De Gea, who will turn 33 in November, has made more than 650 professional appearances, most of them for Manchester United, where he was named player of the season on multiple occasions.
