United are ready to part ways with De Gea and want to get his massive £350,000-a-week wages off their books.
But it will come at a price with the Mirror claiming the club must cough up a large pay-out to cut his time at Old Trafford short.
The Spain keeper still has two years left to run on his current contract so the Red Devils will have to pay him a huge sum.
It's claimed United are splashing out £570,000-a-week on five senior goalkeepers with the club's owners hellbent on reducing that cost this summer.
Dean Henderson, who has played six Premier League games this season, sealed a new five-year deal worth £100,000-a-week last summer.
Henderson stepped up when De Gea returned to Spain to be at the birth of his first child last month.
The 24-year-old kept clean sheets against Crystal Palace, Manchester City, West Ham and AC Milan.
While United are set to be busy in the summer transfer window, solving the De Gea situation will be near the top of their priorities.
Though with clubs around Europe being hit financially by COVID-19, Solskjaer and Co may struggle to sell him at a price which they deem fit.
Further reports suggest they value him at £50 million.
De Gea, 30, has been one of United's best performers since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
He's helped his side win the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League during his glittering spell.
He's also won the club's Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award an impressive four times.
