Manchester United are starting to get rid of their players, the departure of David de Gea will mark a before and after for the club, because after 12 years the Spanish goalkeeper says goodbye to Old Trafford, after seeing his contract expire and could not have reached an agreement for his negotiation. 

The 32-year-old was, along with Phil Jones, the last remaining players from the great Sir Alex Ferguson era, as well as the last to lift the Premier League trophy in the 12/13 season; De Gea's farewell will no doubt always be marked on the calendar as a sad day for the fans who felt it was the wrong way to let a legend go. 

However, a new chapter in the history of Manchester United begins and not everything can be so bad or at least that's how the club would see it, because with the departure of the Spanish goalkeeper, other opportunities open up, for that reason Erik Ten Hag would try to quickly get a replacement in goal, the name of André Onana has sounded enough and the talks are very advanced for the Inter Milan goalkeeper to wear the shirt of the red devils for next season, which would mark a new era in goal. 

In addition to that there would be another thing that United would see as a benefit after the departure of De Gea, as we all know one of the reasons why he could not renew with the club, was the salary, as the Spanish goalkeeper was receiving a salary of 375,000 pounds a week, a figure that the team could no longer afford to pay him, because of all the financial problems, so the departure of the player represents an economic respite for the red devils. 

United could save £82m by leaving by selling its players

Manchester United are not at the best financial stage in their history, but it is true that they have players earning very good salaries who have not performed adequately, so during the summer, Ten Hag would hope to continue to move some players that would allow them to have more economic space.
