Erik ten Hag Makes David de Gea Decision Ahead Of Next Season As The Spaniard Could Be Shipped Out

According to ESPN’s Rob Dawson, a tier-two source, Erik ten Hag is ‘concerned’ over David De Gea’s suitability for his intense system at Manchester United.

This is something the Manchester Evening News has reported as well. They claim Ten Hag’s system needs a goalkeeper who can build play from the back. That means they have to be good at distribution and picking out key players.

That’s a well-known weakness of De Gea’s. The Spaniard has completed 69% of his passes this season. For context, Manchester City’s Ederson has completed 88% over the same number of games.

Ederson is particularly known for his pinpoint passes and also gets involved in the play.

The MEN further suggests that Ten Hag needs someone like Ederson for his system to truly thrive.

Signing a striker and a defensive midfielder are United’s two top priorities ahead of the summer transfer window.

ESPN, however, adds that Ten Hag does ‘accept’ that there are more pressing concerns to fix for the Red Devils’ squad before addressing the goalkeeping situation.
