De Gea let in four goals as Manchester United crashed out of the Captial One Cup at the hands of MK Dons 4-0 on Tuesday.

Manchester United have gotten off to a disappointing start under Lous van Gaal, who used this match to give a number of young players experience. The young players did not come through, and plenty of veterans struggled as well. De Gea will not be pleased having picked the ball out of his net four times.

There was some talk that de Gea could start after Iker Casillas' terrible performance against Netherlands, but if he were to be benched, Pepe Reina is now the only other option in net.

De Gea is one of the handful of players that Manchester United plan to open contract discussions with before the end of the season, reports the Daily Mail.

De GEa is one of the few talents united is hoping to renew by the close of the season. The goalkeeper has grown into his position after a shaky start with the club, but has turned in a number of top-tier performances so far this season despite the team's trouble.
