Incoming Roma manager Jose Mourinho is considering a summer swoop for David de Gea, consistent with reports.
The Serie A side announced on Tuesday that the Portuguese will replace Paulo Fonseca because of the club’s manager next season.
Mourinho has already begun performing on recruitment plans for the summer, as he attempts to urge Roma back to the Champions League.
The Giallorossi are currently 14 points adrift of the highest four in Serie A and were eliminated from the Europa League by Manchester United on Thursday.
De Gea started between the sticks within the second leg of the semi-final, which Roma won 3-2 following a 6-2 loss at Old Trafford every week prior.
However, the Spain international has been demoted to United’s No.2 within the Premier League, with Dean Henderson allowed to impress by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Henderson has generally performed well so far and appears set to be United’s first-choice goalkeeper next term.
De Gea isn’t willing to spend the season on the bench and is claimed to be eyeing a move far away from Old Trafford.
And consistent with Todofichajes, Mourinho is curious about bringing the 30-year-old to the Stadio Olimpico.
The Spanish publication reports that De Gea’s former manager at United is going to be given an enormous say within the transfer market this summer.
Mourinho has supposedly requested the goalkeeper, but Roma could face competition from Juventus and Atletico Madrid.
The report suggests that United would be hospitable in selling the Spaniard, although it remains to be seen whether Roma could afford to satisfy their selling price.
United’s 8-5 aggregate victory over Fonseca’s side means they’re going to face Villarreal within the Europa League final on May 26.
De Gea has the prospect to win the tournament for a 3rd time, having triumphed in 2010 with Atletico and 2017 together with his current employers.
