De Gea, 32, faces an uncertain future as his current contract expires at the end of the month.

And the post claims boss Ten Hag is “not convinced” De Gea can be a regular starter in the new campaign.

Should De Gea sign a new deal, he would likely be the replacement for a new No1 signed in the market. Talks are currently ongoing between the goalkeeper’s representatives and United bosses.

The top player doesn’t want his minutes of play to go down, a scenario that is very likely if United end up switching for a goalkeeper.

Players such as Inter Milan’s Andre Onana, Brentford’s David Raya and Porto’s Diogo Costa are considered targets.

Should he leave United, De Gea already has several options in Saudi Arabia.

But there could also be offers from Europe, with clubs in Spain likely to be interested.

If De Gea stays at United, he will face a cut in his £375,000-week wages.

And he could now reportedly only be paid a fraction of that sum after United pulled out of his original contract offer.

The stopper is believed to have previously penned a new deal that included a lower salary.

However, United eventually declined to sign the end of contract.

And now De Gea has been sent a second new proposal with an even lower salary package.
