FORMER Manchester United keeper David de Gea could be set to link up with a Spanish SECOND TIER side, according to reports.

The ex-Red Devils star, 33, left Old Trafford in the summer as his contract expired and he was not offered another one.

It brought to an end a 12-year stint at Man Utd during which he won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League.

Since then, De Gea, who played 545 times for Man Utd, has been unable to find a club and remains unemployed more than two months into the new season.

SunSport recently revealed Erik ten Hag's men were considering a remarkable U-turn by re-signing the Spanish shot-stopper.

He is also said to have met with Real Betis.

However, now he could be set to drop down a level in order to continue his career.

According to Onda Cero, De Gea has met with Eldense chiefs - a Spanish side who sit 11th in LaLiga Hypermotion.

The keeper was in Alicante last week for a meeting with the team's bosses as he sought to understand their project and vision.

But there is also a belief De Gea's interest in the club may come in the form of ownership.

Eldense president Pascual Perez recently revealed he intends to sell his majority stake.

And De Gea could see the club as an attractive organisation to invest in.

Eldense have sealed back-to-back promotions in each of the past two seasons.

They are now enjoying a first ever campaign in the second division.
