De Gea is unlikely to play in Sunday's season-finale against Hull City because of the hamstring injury he suffered Saturday against Arsenal, the Independent reports.

Victor Valdes, who replaced De Gea in Saturday's match after he came off in the second half, will likely get the start. De Gea is widely believed to want a move to Spain next season, with Real Madrid the likeliest destination.

De Gea made three saves during Manchester United's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The victory ended a three-game losing streak for United, and while De Gea didn't allow multiple goals, he's now gone seven consecutive games without a clean sheet. Up next is a tough matchup against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

De Gea made one save during Manchester United's 4-2 win over Manchester City on Sunday.

While Manchester United have been on a solid run, De Gea has only three clean sheets in his last 10 Premier League appearances, while allowing multiple goals in two other matches in that spam. Up next is a tough trip to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

De Gea made one save and allowed one goal to Christian Benteke during Manchester United's 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

The United defense hasn't been nearly as solid as it was earlier in the season, but De Gea doesn't usually get beat for multiple goals, which still provides plenty of value in many fantasy formats. In fact, he's allowed multiple goals just once in 2015 -- Feb. 21 against Swansea -- though he may have a tough time next weekend at the final Manchester derby of the season.

De Gea said that Manchester United must qualify for the Champions League next season and cannot miss that mark two seasons in a row, reports the Mirror.

Speculation has run rampant about the star goalkeeper's future with the team, linking him to a move to real Madrid. His aim is clearly on making sure United make it to Europe next season, but could indicate restlessness if they fail.

De Gea made three saves during Manchester United's 2-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday, and while he picked up a little knock during the match, he was able to power through it.

Backup Victor Valdes was held out with a knock of his own, and while Anders Lindegaard was sent to warm up, De Gea was able to continue playing, and he looks likely to start Wednesday against Newcastle.

De Gea made three saves during Manchester United's 2-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday.

The clean sheet was De Gea's first in Premier League play since blanking QPR on Jan. 17, and while he has a decent chance to begin a shutout streak Wednesday against Newcastle, it'll get much tougher after that with matches against Tottenham and Liverpool.

De Gea is moving closer to a new contract with Manchester United despite earlier interest from Real Madrid, reports the Daily Mail.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said he is happy with his options at goal, and Manchester United has been resolute in their effort to retain De Gea. His current contract expires at the end of next season.
