Manchester United first-team coach, Benni McCarthy has warned the club against losing one of the best goalkeepers David de Gea.
McCarthy claimed it would be ‘a crime’ if De Gea left Old Trafford this summer.
De Gea is out of contract with Man United at the end of the month.
Reports had claimed that the 32-year-old Spaniard had reached an agreement over a new deal.
De Gea won the Premier League’s Golden Glove award for 2022/2023 after keeping 17 clean sheets in the top flight last season.
“He kept 17 clean sheets in the league. Yes, of course, you are going to concede but to win the Golden Glove for yet another season is remarkable,” McCarthy told 947 Joburg.
“You see how difficult the league is, so I understand that, yes, everyone has a bad game here and there, but it doesn’t stop him from being one of the best goalkeepers I have seen and I have worked with. He is unbelievable.
“You only see him on a Saturday or on a matchday, and if you see a player make a mistake, [fans] yelling at him, the critics hit the roof.
“But I get to spend every single day with him and he is an unbelievable guy, a great lad, very intelligent and one of the best goalkeepers I have seen. It would be a crime if Man United loses a goalkeeper like David de Gea,” he said.
