The 30-year-old aggravated the injury during the warm-up in last weekend's defeat at Carlisle.

Bees boss Uwe Rosler is now without experienced back-up to current number one Simon Moore as the west London outfit push for promotion.

Head of Brentford's medical department Neil Greig told the club's official website: "Richard has been troubled by a shoulder injury for some time now and exploratory surgery had been planned for the close season.

"However, a heavy fall during the warm-up for the Carlisle game has seen Richard sustain further damage to the area and, following consultation with a leading orthopaedic specialist, the decision was made to bring forward the procedure in order to allow Richard the best opportunity of being fit for the early part of next season."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
