‘I’m not retiring at this rate’

Former Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, 34, once called the best goalkeeper in the English Premier League (EPL), is reportedly still looking for a new job. De Gea, who left United in July last year, has yet to find a new club and was once speculated to retire, but he is still keen on extending his playing career.

‘Newcastle, who lost Nick Pope to a long-term injury in December, were interested in De Gea, but it was reported in December that he would demand a pay cut,’ the publication said, adding that ‘another publication, The Sun, said De Gea had decided to stay in Spain to take up an offer from a Spanish Primera Liga club,’ explaining why Newcastle’s bid fell through.

The report went on to say that De Gea, who had hoped to sign for La Liga’s Atletico Madrid or Real Madrid but was unsuccessful, had turned down an offer from Nottingham Forest in the January transfer window. Nottingham also asked him to take a pay cut, which he refused, leading to Nottingham signing Mats Sels from Strasbourg for £5.5 million.
