Neville convinced De Gea will leave Man Utd

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville expects David de Gea to soon depart.

Neville discussed Erik ten Hag's philosophy following the 6-3 derby defeat to Manchester City.

He said on the Gary Neville podcast: "We all know where Ten Hag wants to get this United team, he wants 75 per cent possession, players that can handle the ball, defenders can handle the ball and the goalkeeper needs to be brilliant on the ball.

"I suspect with David de Gea, his United career is going to be shortlived under Ten Hag.

"He's [Ten Hag] going to be adamant that his philosophy of playing out from the back, playing those risky passes to the midfield that we see with Ederson all the time, that we no longer see as risky because they do it so well, is something that he's striving for and that he wants to get to."

The Spanish keeper is out of contract at the end of the season.
