David de Gea is reportedly set to agree a bumper new £350,000 per week long-term contract extension with Manchester United.
Daily Telegraph have reported that the uncertainties surrounding the future of David de Gea at Old Trafford are set to come to an end. The Spanish goalkeeper, who has been a contract rebel for Manchester United for quite some time now, is set to sign a new long-term deal worth £350,000 per week.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup followed by the club season that followed might have made it a forgettable twelve months for David de Gea. But, there is no denying the fact that the Spaniard continues to be held in high regard at Manchester United, as he gets set to begin his ninth season with them.
The record four-time Manchester United Player of the Year winner has been easily the most consistent player for the Red Devils in their most tumultuous period of the Premier League era. But, with just one year left on his deal with the club, there had been lingering fears over his future at Old Trafford.
PSG have been heavily linked with the 28-year-old, but Manchester United have been intent on getting their star player to put pen to paper on a new deal. However, with the two parties at odds over the wages, an impasse had been stretched for a long period.
Recent reports though, had suggested that de Gea was likely to commit his long-term future to Manchester United, which had come as a positive update for the club’s fanbase. And, United’s pursuit of agreeing a renewal with the Spanish international is now set to bear fruit, according to Daily Telegraph.
The report claims that de Gea is expected to renew terms with Manchester United once their pre-season campaign ends next month. And, as had been reported recently, the Premier League giants’ offer of a £350,000-a-week deal has finally been accepted by the player and his camp.
The wages pocketed from the new contract will make de Gea the highest paid goalkeeper in the world and the latest Manchester United player to have sign a contract extension with the Red Devils.
With David de Gea set to be tied down to a bumper new £350,000 per week contract, Manchester United can turn their focus towards bringing their top targets to Old Trafford, seeing as less than a month remains for the summer transfer window to slam shut in England, with a deal for Harry Maguire believed to be in place.
