Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is set to join Erik ten Hag’s squad next season and is ready to accept the new challenges under the Dutchman’s system.

According to rumors, Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea is dissatisfied with goalkeeper training at Old Trafford.

However, with the next boss step taking over the responsibility at Carrington training ground, the Spaniard is willing to up his goalkeeping skills ahead of next season.

Pol Ballus, a reporter from The Athletic, claims that De Gea is eager to develop his game in order to adapt to Erik Ten Hag’s philosophy which requires his goalie to be superior in passing.

After a breakout season in 2021/2022, the Spain international is widely expected to be Erik ten Hag’s No 1 next season. Despite his impressive performances, things aren’t always as they seem behind the scenes.

After falling behind Dean Henderson in the pecking order a year ago, it appeared that De Gea might struggle to preserve his No. 1 shirt at United.

Henderson’s start to the season was delayed by a coronavirus, but he was able to reclaim his starting position between the goal sticks.

The Englishman is close to joining Nottingham Forest on loan, but the situation around United might appear to change Henderson’s mind to leave Old Trafford.

De Gea was just named United’s player of the season after a stellar season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick, making the highest amount of saves in the league.

De Gea is also believed to be upset over losing his place in the Spain national squad, despite the fact that he last played for his country in 2020.

Luis Enrique has mentioned De Gea’s frailties in terms of his lack of distribution from the back in the UEFA Nations League games.

Last season, De Gea took on greater leadership responsibilities after a string of embarrassing defeats and it is expected that the Spanish goalkeeper will sort out his passing skills.
