David de Gea posts cryptic 'juggling' tweet amid Man Utd contract uncertainty
| Last updated
David de Gea has posted another cryptic tweet amid uncertainty over his Manchester United future.
Last month talks between De Gea and United failed to produce a resolution and the 32-year-old became a free agent, with his contract expiring last Friday.
It has been claimed De Gea had, in fact, signed a new contract extension months ago, only for the Old Trafford club to withdraw the offer and come back with reduced terms.
De Gea and United remain locked in negotiations over a potential new deal, and amid talks continuing between the parties, the Spanish shot-stopper has posted a cryptic tweet.
De Gea, who tied the knot with long-term partner Edurne last Saturday, tweeted a "juggling emoji" on Thursday, potentially in reference to the difficulty of balancing married life and his contract situation.
Indeed, the tweet comes a week after the shot-stopper shared a yawn emoji on Twitter, amid growing speculation over his future.
Man Utd goalkeeper search
According to Sky Sports News United remain in talks with Inter as they work to find a compromise over the fee for Andre Onana.
The Cameroonian could reportedly be sold for a fee in the region of £45million (€52.5million) with add-ons.
The Champions League finalists are said to value Onana at around £51million (€60million) and they have publicly claimed he will remain at the club unless that figure is met.
On Wednesday United submitted an opening £38.5million (€45million) bid for the player, which was subsequently rejected.
The 27-year-old is reportedly keen to move to Old Trafford and reunite with his former Ajax manager, Erik ten Hag.
United have also been linked to Brentford's David Raya and Porto's Diogo Costa.
Erik ten Hag is on the hunt for a new goalkeeper irrespective of the outcome of De Gea's contract talks.
While De Gea won the Golden Glove award last term having claimed 16 clean sheets, the goalkeeper cost his team in a number of crucial moments, including in the FA Cup against Manchester City.
