Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea confirmed he has left Manchester United following 12 years at the club after failing to agree terms on a new deal. He wrote on social media: “I just wanted to send this farewell message to all Manchester United supporters.” The 32-year-old, who is now a free agent after his contract expired at the end of June, added: “Now, it’s the right time to undertake a new challenge, to push myself again in new surroundings. Manchester will always be in my heart, Manchester has shaped me and will never leave me.”Rashford made an awkward mistake when bidding farewell to De Gea, who initially joined United for £18.9 million in 2011. An image on Rashford’s account saw him embracing the goalkeeper, with the caption reading: “Caption ideas: You were here from my breakthrough, good luck with your next step brother.”With De Gea’s exit, after 545 appearances and 190 clean sheets for United, the Red Devils are now on the hunt for a new number one keeper. They are reportedly in talks to sign Inter Milan stopper Andre Onana for a fee in the region of £45m, but the Serie A side are understood to value the 27-year-old, who played under Erik ten Hag when he was in charge at Ajax, at £51m.De Gea is looking for a new club, whilst United try and find his successor ahead of the new season.
