David De Gea Considering Retirement After Struggling To Find The Right Next Move

As David De Gea struggles to find the right next move for him after leaving Manchester United, he is now considering retiring from playing football, according to reports.

The 32-year-old left Old Trafford when his contract expired at the end of last season, ending a 12-season stint with the Premier League giants. He came in for some criticism during his years with the Red Devils, but also excelled at times and there was no suggestion that leaving the club was going to be the end of his career.

De Gea Has Received Multiple Offers

However, The Guardian report that the Spain international is considering retirement if he does not receive an offer from a major club who want him to be first choice goalkeeper. De Gea has received multiple offers over the summer, including from Saudi Arabia, but money is not thought to be a major factor for him.

The Spaniard is keen to play for a team competing for major honours and to be brought in as first choice, but that opportunity is yet to arise. He is still training alone to stay fit and is ready to sign for a club as a free agent as and when the right chance turns up, but if it doesn’t then retirement could await.

Big Clubs Have Been Linked With De Gea

There have been some huge clubs linked with De Gea this summer, including Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan, but none of those moves matieralised. Real Betis and Valencia are also reportedly interested, but clearly De Gea has not been made an offer he is keen on just yet.

De Gea’s Career So Far

De Gea began his career at Atletico Madrid in 2008, where he made over 100 appearances before joining Manchester United in 2011. He went on to make nearly 400 appearances for the Red Devils and won a Premier League title, an FA Cup, a League Cup and a Europa League during his time there.

He also won the Golden Glove award in 2017/18 and was named in the PFA Team of the Year in 2013/14 and 2017/18. He has also been capped by Spain on 73 occasions and was part of their squads for the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016.

What The Future Holds For De Gea

It remains to be seen what the future holds for De Gea, but it seems he is willing to wait until he finds an opportunity that excites him before deciding whether or not to retire. He has achieved a lot in his career so far and will no doubt have plenty of options available to him if he decides to continue playing.

For now, though, it looks like De Gea is content to wait until the right opportunity comes along before making a decision on his future. Whatever happens, it will be interesting to see what the next chapter of his career holds.
