The Spanish goalkeeper was the club’s best paid player, earning £375,000 a week, but United did not renew his contract after signing Andre Onana.

However, following ‘lucrative’ proposals from Saudi teams this summer, De Gea might be ready to DOUBLE his income.

Al-Nassr is one of the parties who are interested in a reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, the Riyadh-based team is now on a transfer embargo due to missing payments, allowing rival Saudi clubs to swoop.

De Gea initially appeared ready to stay at United, with the custodian willing to accept a wage reduction in order to compete for a starting spot.

But, just as an agreement was about to be reached, United withdrew the offer, forcing De Gea to walk away from the talks and end his 12-year association with the club.

United considered Everton custodian Jordan Pickford as De Gea’s replacement but baulked at the Toffees’ £70 million asking price.

The club then turned their attention to Onana, who is set to undergo a medical later this week as part of a £47 million deal.

De Gea leaves United as the club’s all-time leading custodian with 545 appearances.

With United, he won six major titles, including the Premier League in 2013 and the Europa League in 2017.

Former captain Harry Maguire could be following De Gea out the door.

Maguire acknowledged yesterday that he has lost his captaincy at United, with manager Erik Ten Hag no longer considering him as a reliable first-team option.

In a social media post, he stated that he was “extremely disappointed” with Ten Hag’s choice.
