Italian Champions Juventus have been placed on alert as Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is reportedly hesitant about signing a new contract with the club.
According to James Ducker of the Daily Telegraph, the Red Devils have made little progress in negotiations with the Spain international over an extension, with his current terms set to expire in 2020.
“De Gea is reluctant to commit to another contract while United are struggling so badly on the pitch, and the Spain goalkeeper could leave on a free transfer at the end of next season, unless the club is forced to cash in before then should they fail to achieve a breakthrough in negotiations,” the report continued.
Juventus are on the lookout for a new number one and have been linked with De Gea. United could be forced to sell the keeper next summer if he will not sign a contract, or they will lose him for free at the end of 2019/20.
The Red Devils have reportedly targeted Mat Ryan, the Brighton goalkeeper, as a potential replacement for De Gea.
