De Gea at a crossroads – retirement at the age of 32 is also an option


David De Gea is at a crossroads in his career as he turns 33 and is still without a team.

The Madrid goalkeeper, who left Manchester United on June 30 after his contract was not renewed, is also considering the possibility of retirement, writes ‘The Guardian’.

The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper has not received any offers to convince him to continue playing.

The Spanish representative also had offers from clubs in Saudi Arabia, but he did not accept.

He considers that the economic aspect is not the main thing at the moment in his assessment when choosing a new club, but the English media write that he will retire if he does not soon receive an offer from an important European club to be the starting goalkeeper.


De Gea won’t wait long, at least until the end of this year as he trains to get fit until he gets the right offer.

De Gea, who will turn 33 in November, has played more than 650 games as a professional, most of them for Manchester United, where for many seasons he was the best at Old Trafford.
