Rio Ferdinand assures that David de Gea’s stay at Manchester United could be coming to an end. The former goalkeeper of Atlético de Madrid has not played since February 28, in the 0-0 draw against Chelsea.
In a talk with British media BT Sport, Ferdinand stated: “You have two options: fight for your position or say, ‘I’m done, I’m going somewhere else.’ If Dean Henderson finishes this season as number one, David will do his best to get out, I’m sure. “.
And I add: “He loves it at Manchester United, he lives and breathes this club, he has done it since he is here. But I don’t see him stick around and say, ‘okay, Dean Henderson has the shirt, I’m going to sit and wait.’ There is no possibility, I do not see it, he is going to want to go “.
Anyway, he ended by dedicating a few words to the current starting goalkeeper: “Henderson has been waiting for this opportunity. Now the pressure is on him. Can it live up to expectations? I’m excited for him and can’t wait to see what he can do. Solskjaer has seen something in him, but now he has to prove it. It’s okay to be number one at Sheffield United, but it’s different at Manchester United. “
De Gea came to Manchester United in 2011 and has played 406 games for the English club. During his stay he won a Premier League, a UEFA Europa League, an FA Cup, a League Cup and three Community Shields.
