Man United Keeper Linked With Ronaldo Reunion at Al Nassr

David de Gea is reportedly being targeted for a reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo by Al-Nassr after his Manchester United contract expired.

Goalkeeper De Gea, 32, became a free agent on Friday (June 30). Talks with the Old Trafford hierarchy over a new deal broke down last week.

It was claimed he agreed to revised terms which saw his £375,000 weekly wage reduced to £200k before United withdrew that offer and proposed an even lower salary.

Now he's become the latest star lined up for a move to Saudi Arabia, according to The Sun, with Al-Nassr tabling a £250,000-a-week contract for him.

However, it's also reported De Gea would ideally stay in Manchester if he can reach an agreement once and for all with the Red Devils. He's currently not in contact with them as he got married to long-term partner and singer Edurne, 37, on Saturday (July 1).

But face-to-face negotiations are set to resume in the not too distant future. United are looking to replace him with a new No. 1 for next season.

Losing him for good would mean they'd need to sign two shot stoppers this summer, though, with second-choice Dean Henderson already headed for the exit door.

Erik ten Hag is working with a limited budget, £60million of which is imminently being spent of Mason Mount, so De Gea's departure would be far from ideal.

Al-Nassr can offer him an unrivalled pay packet as one of the four Saudi clubs backed by the Middle Eastern nation's Public Investment Fund.

They're already closing in on a deal for Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, and were set to spend £17m on Chelsea's Hakim Ziyech before they discovered a knee problem in his medical which led to them pulling out.
