De Gea To Sign Long Term Contract With Man United, David de Gea will sign a new long-term contract at Manchester United that will make him the best-paid goalkeeper in the world, Sky Sports News understands.
The Spain international has been offered between £350,000 and £375,000 per week to remain at Old Trafford.
Negotiations between Man United and De Gea have been taking place for over a year, with the 28-year-old’s current deal due to expire at the end of the season.
De Gea has been named United’s player of the year on a record four occasions since arriving from Atletico Madrid eight years ago.
He started for Man United in their 1-0 win over Inter Milan in the International Champions Cup on Saturday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United manager, gave a positive update on the goalkeeper’s future ahead of their pre-season match against Leeds last Wednesday.
He said: “As I’ve said a few times I think that will be up to David De Gea and the club to announce if it happens – if and when.”
