De Gea Dives into Padel and Contemplates Retirement

January 5, 2024

The veteran Spanish goalkeeper, who spent an impressive 12 years with Man-U, has shifted his focus to a new sport – Padel. Recent reports suggest that De Gea, at 33, has been honing his skills on the padel court, joining the ranks of footballers exploring the growing sport. 

Former Newcastle and PSG star Hatem Ben Arfa, 36, has also embraced padel, securing a national ranking in France. 

While De Gea remains without a clear return to football, he is not letting his athleticism fade, staying fit through Padel and keeping the door open for potential opportunities. Despite rumors and offers, the keeper seems to be relishing his time away from the spotlight, contemplating retirement, and investing energy into his esports team, co-owned with former teammate Bruno Fernandes. 

A new chapter unfolds for De Gea, blending competitive sports and personal pursuits.
