PSG preparing offer for Man Utd keeper De Gea

PSG are preparing a bid for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Sun says PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino has identified de Gea as a key target and could sanction a mega-money move for the keeper in the summer window.

De Gea has been at United for almost a decade but at present it is uncertain whether he will remain at Old Trafford next season.

Dean Henderson is competing with de Gea for the No 1 shirt at United and there have been suggestions that one of the pair will leave this summer.

If de Gea was to leave United, it would leave Henderson free to claim the No 1 spot at Old Trafford.

Given their financial resources, PSG would be able to afford de Gea's wages of £375,000-a-week - the highest in the Premier League - and would also be able to stump up a significant transfer fee to tempt United to sell.
