While Andre Onana was signed for £47 million to replace the sacked Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea, Man United players ‘are still furious at David de Gea’s treatment.
It has been stated that the players at Manchester United are still bitter over the way David de Gea was treated before his departure in the summer.
De Gea’s 12-year tenure as Manchester United’s starting goalkeeper came to an end at the end of June, and the Spaniard subsequently moved on.
The 32-year-old had agreed to a new contract with the club that would have reduced his compensation from £375,000 per week, but the club then reneged on the pact.
Because of his concerns regarding De Gea’s ball-handling skills, Erik ten Hag agreed to spend £47 million to acquire Andre Onana from Inter Milan.
The Sun reports that the Man United players are still seething about the way De Gea was treated before his departure.
United’s players were reportedly upset by the way the Spaniard was released.
The 32-year-old was well-liked by his teammates and was rewarded with the Premier League’s golden glove after recording the most shutouts.
De Gea, who is still without a club, tweeted a circus emoji after the contract U-turn to convey his dissatisfaction with the circumstances of his departure.
Later, he claimed that he was’seeking a new challenge’ after Man United rescinded the contract offer.
De Gea ‘earned’ a better farewell from the club, Man United’s new captain Bruno Fernandes said at the time on social media.
The Portuguese midfielder shared his feelings for his brother on Instagram: “You know what I think about you and how much i will miss you bro.”
For all the amazing times we’ve had together, you deserved to go out with a stadium full of applauding fans.
No one can take that away from you; you made club history, and your nаme will live on in infamy. I want the best for you and your loved ones in the future.
After years of criticism for his play with the ball at Old Trafford, De Gea was eventually replaced by Onana.
The Cameroonian international player has struggled at the outset of his Man United career.
Onana has conceded 14 goals in his first six appearances, including a high-profile error for the opening goal in the Red Devils’ 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.
