Former Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is on the verge of finally joining a club
According to the Spanish outlet Eldes Marque (h/t Manchester Evening News), former Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is on the verge of joining another club and we think it’s Real Betis or Sevilla. The fact that he already has experience in that league makes him a good fit to again join a Spanish side.
However, it is believed that one of the first team’s existing goalkeepers would presumably be impacted by De Gea’s potential arrival at Betis. And now it would all be about Rui Silva. The Portuguese, who is sidelined until after the break after suffering an injury once more, finds it uncomfortable to be substituted other than on certain days and would not be opposed to leaving.
The Spanish custodian had an outstanding season for the Red Devils in goal, earning him the Golden Glove trophy for the Premier League in 2022–2023. De Gea maintained an amazing 17 clean sheets overall in the English premier league, but it was insufficient to secure him a contract extension; the club declined to give him an additional year at will.
The 33-year-old declined big summer offers from Saudi Arabian teams in the hopes that a major European team would approach him. During his final four years at United, he made an incredible £375,000 each week. Onana joined the Red Devils from Inter Milan, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich, but no deal ever came together for the most prominent free agent in football.
De Gea’s exit made room for Andre Onana, who formerly played for Inter Milan, to join United and assume the starting position. Onana’s performances this season have drawn criticism from a wide range of football analysts and fans. The Cameroon international has made a number of crucial mistakes that have severely hurt his team.

Betis travel across town to play Sevilla, their bitter rivals. De Gea won’t be able to make it in time for that match if the transfer ever happens, but he will have another opportunity to play at Estadio Benito Villamarin during the winter window. De Gea faced Pellegrini’s team with the Red Devils last season.
We can only hope that De Gea joins a club where he can play like he used to in our club and maintain the consistency which many goalkeepers lack.
