Man Utd fans concerned by De Gea contract talks

David De Gea made a terrible mistake as Arsenal beat Manchester United 2-0 at the Emirates on Sunday.

The Spain international, usually so reliable for the Red Devils, was at fault for his side conceding a strange goal from midfielder Granit Xhaka.

The Gunners star took aim from distance and launched a speculative effort at goal.

The ball appeared to dip in the air and, with De Gea committing his weight to one side, the ball merely floated into the bottom corner. There was no deflection and nor was the goalkeeper unsighted, with the shot giving Unai Emery’s side the lead in north London.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wrapped up the victory in the second half as he scored from the penalty spot after Fred fouled Alexandre Lacazette in the area.

Per Squawka, De Gea last saved a penalty in October of 2014, seeing 13 spot-kicks ripple the net in that time.

And United fans have agreed with Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville’s assertion, via Daily Mirror, that the goalkeeper has been distracted by contract talks in recent months.

United triggered a one-year extension in De Gea’s contract in November, but the London Evening Standard report that he is holding out for a bumper deal that will make him the club’s highest-paid player on over £400,000-per-week.
