David de Gea was a glaring absentee in Wednesday’s goalless draw Manchester United has with Southampton sparking speculations that the goalkeeper may have had his last game with United in Sunday’s 3-1 loss at Tottenham Hotspur.
The absence of the first choice goalkeeper is coming on the heels of speculations in Marca, a Spanish publication, that De Gea has already agreed personal terms of €75m (£63.5m, $82m) with Real Madrid.
A report in the Manchester Evening News has it that the Spain international goalkeeper is dispirited and had an increasingly uncertain future at Old Trafford.
United will on Wednesday play their biggest match this season when they face Ajax Amsterdam in the Europa Cup final.
The Europa League final provides a path for Manchester United into next season’s Champions League. It is the game that could define whether Mourinho’s season at United a success or failure.
The manager dismissed the speculations that Manchester United had plans of selling David de Gea this summer.
