Italian Serie A champions Juventus will reportedly wait to sign Manchester United shot stopper David De Gea for free.

According to the report from The Times via footballitalia, Juventus are very notorious for snapping up quality players for free and that they are ready to repeat the same trick in their pursuit of the Spanish international goalkeeper.

David De Gea has been a key member of the Manchester United squad since he joined the Red Devils from Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid for a then British record fee of £18.9m for a goalkeeper.

Since he became a Red Devil in 2011, De Gea has made over 300 appearances in addition to winning the 2012/13 Premier League title, the 2016 FA Cup title, 2017 Carabao Cup title and the 2017 Europa League title.

The aforementioned report further cited the example of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

The France World Cup winner was snapped up by the Old Lady on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2012 before making a return to Old Trafford four years later in a then world fee of around €110m.

David De Gea has less than a year on his current deal at Old Trafford but the club can invoke a clause of an additional year in his contract thus taking him to the end of the 2019/20 season.

Juventus are prepared to wait for him to be a free agent.
