Man Utd news: David de Gea sent contract warning as Mason Greenwood handed exit route

Manchester United’s poor form continued as a defeat at West Ham, courtesy of another David de Gea error, saw scrutiny return to the future of the Spanish goalkeeper

Ten Hag expresses disappointment as Man Utd lose at Brighton

Manchester United suffered a 1-0 defeat at West Ham on Sunday evening as their hopes of a top four finish in the Premier League suffered a blow.

Erik ten Hag’s side are one point ahead of fifth-placed Liverpool having played one game fewer, but there is now a real possibility that they could blow their position in the race which had looked a formality until back-to-back defeats.

Another costly error from David de Gea, who let in Said Benrahma’s tame long-range effort, once again threw the goalkeeper’s future into the spotlight. De Gea is out of contract this summer and there are renewed suggestions that the club should allow him to leave.

Here, Mirror Football rounds up the latest news from the red half of Manchester.

BT Sport pundits Rio Ferdinand and Peter Crouch have suggested Manchester United allow David de Gea to leave the club at the end of his contract this summer.

That has been refuted by boss Ten Hag, who insists he wants De Gea to stay and pen a new deal at Old Trafford. The first offer was not accepted by the Spaniard.

The question now is whether United view the goalkeeper as next season’s number one or if another goalkeeper will arrive to provide competition for his starting spot.
