David de Gea has informed Manchester United he is ready to leave, it has been claimed.
Don Balon says the goalkeeper has told United directors – via agent Jorge Mendes – that he wishes to leave United after this summer’s World Cup.
De Gea has made it clear his decision has nothing to do with manager Jose Mourinho, but at 27 he feels ready to test himself in a new league and a new city.
Juventus and Turin has been mentioned, but PSG are also being linked with the Spain No1.
Real Madrid have long been regarded as favourites to sign De Gea, but in his conversation with Mendes he has stated he wants to experience a new city and lifestyle.
Last week, De Gea was reluctant to discuss publicly his contract situation with United: “I don’t think it’s the time to start talking about the future, it’s not the time to be talking contracts.
“We have lots of games between now and the end of the season and the first thing we need to think about is Burnley this weekend.
“It’s all about getting your head down, focusing, working hard, competing in training, keeping fit and picking up points.”
