Manchester United

defender Rio Ferdinand believes David De Gea will leave Old Trafford this summer after losing his place to Dean Henderson.

In the middle of the season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer put Dean Henderson inside his team's goal and made a change between the posts. De Gea, who has won the United Player of the Year four times, is now Henderson's back-up goalie, and Ferdinand believes the current situation could lead to De Gea's departure.

He told

“You’ve got two options: you fight for your position or you say, 'that’s me done, I’m off and I’ll go somewhere else.'

“If Dean Henderson finishes the season as No 1, I don’t see De Gea staying there. No chance, I don’t see it. I think he’ll go out now.

“His wages will be a determining factor but at the end of the day, two No 1s doesn’t work.

“De Gea has been a mainstay in the team but Ole is maybe seeing things differently now.
