1- David de Gea- £375,000/week
There has been so much talk around David de Gea’s contract situation and his wages that nothing new can really be added at this point.
The Spaniard is on the same wage as Erling Haaland, doesn’t fit Erik ten Hag’s style of play, getting increasingly error-prone, and is still set for an extension.
David de Gea’s replacements list has been covered extensively before. However, the club shows no signs of actually being ruthless and letting him go. His contract expires this summer and it would be a perfect way to hit the reset button on the relic of a bygone era, as valuable as he was then.
Football waits for nobody as despite his best performances being the shining beacon of light in United’s darkest years, it is looking like the bitter truth that United’s brightest years will have to come without David de Gea.
Even if he takes a massive pay cut, there’s no way for his contract to actually be of positive value. Aaron Ramsdale earns around £60,000/week, Ederson is at £100,000, and Alisson is at £150,000, and all of them, on current form, are miles clear of David de Gea. It’s time to cut the cord.
