Solskjaer decides on new Man Utd no. 1 as De Gea rejects final contract offer

Intro

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, will not raid the transfer market to sign a replacement for David de Gea, should the Spaniard push for a summer exit after rejecting a new contract, the Daily Mail reports.

De Gea only has one year left to run on his current deal, after United triggered an extension.

However, he has turned down a final salary offer, which is significantly below the £350,000-a-week he has been demanding.

Rather than risk losing the 28-year-old for nothing in a year’s time, United could decide to cash for around £60million and put the funds towards this summer’s big rebuild.

However, a new goalkeeper will not be on Solskjaer’s wish list if De Gea leaves and he will instead promote Sergio Romero as the club’s new No.1.
