David De Gea has finally put speculation over his future to bed after agreeing to sign a six year contract with Manchester United, per reports.
De Gea will enter the final year of his contract with Man United next season and he had stalled over signing a new contract with side.
Since 2015, the Spanish shot stopper has been heavily linked with a move away from United but they have managed to keep him. And this summer, PSG are believed to be in his chase as well.
Like the entire team, his form nosedived last season and it was believed United would consider signing another keeper.
The 28-year-old star has been talking to United over a deal and we understand that he had made a huge demand to become the club’s most paid player, like Alexis Sanchez.
He currently earns £200,000-a-week, which is quite huge for a goalkeeper but the new deal will not make him smile to the bank for £350,000-a-week, making him the most paid keeper in the world, reports the Telegraph.
He is now expected to sign the new deal when the United players return from their pre-season tour.
The Spaniard has been part of the Man United team that are enjoying good form on their tour. They won twice in Australia against Perth Glory and Leeds United, and thumped Inter Milan at Singapore as well.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reiterated his desire to keep a chunk of the Man United players and he’ll be happy with this one.
