Bayern Munich are reportedly interested in signing David De Gea from Manchester United, in a move that would be a major coup for the German champions.
De Gea, who has been with United for 11 years, is out of contract at the end of the month and is free to sign for any club. He has been linked with a move to several clubs in recent months, including PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
However, Bayern are now said to be in the running for his signature, and are prepared to offer him a lucrative contract. The German club are looking for a new goalkeeper after Manuel Neuer suffered a serious injury last season, and De Gea would be a major upgrade on their current options.
The move would be a shock to many, as De Gea has always been seen as a United player. However, he has been frustrated with the club’s lack of progress in recent years, and is said to be open to a new challenge.
If De Gea does join Bayern, it would be a major statement of intent from the club. They are already one of the most successful teams in Europe, but they are looking to add even more quality to their squad. De Gea would be a huge addition, and would help them to challenge for the Champions League title again.
