David de Gea is still on the lookout for a new team after his departure from Manchester United last summer, ending a significant 12-year tenure with the Premier League giant.

Despite being linked with clubs in the Saudi Pro League, de Gea has yet to commit to a new team and had even passed up on a January transfer opportunity with a Premier League club.

The Athletic have revealed that Nottingham Forest had shown interest in signing the 33-year-old as they looked to bolster their squad for the remainder of the season. Nevertheless, de Gea chose not to accept Forest’s proposition, which was described as a ‘short-term’ deal.

De Gea’s impressive career at Manchester United saw him make 545 appearances across all competitions, contributing to the team’s successes, including victories in the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and Europa League. On the international stage, he has earned 45 caps for Spain.

As a free agent, de Gea remains available to join a new club despite the closing of the transfer window, keeping the door open for future opportunities as he continues his search for a new chapter in his career.
