Manchester United offer new contract improvements for De Gea


An improved offer has been presented to David De Gea in an attempt to extend his United contract, it is understood.

Even though the Spanish international has attracted interest from PSG and Real Madrid, United are still adamant to keep De Gea at Old Trafford by making him the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world.

Marcus Rashford has committed his long-term future to Old Trafford this week and the club is hoping to also persuade their keeper into doing so.

Negotiations with De Gea have been going on for the entire season, with demands around the deal holding things up despite his apparent desire to remain at a club he joined from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

The situation is becoming more pressing as the 28-year-old is out of contract next summer and it is understood that United have made another offer of a five-year deal worth in excess of ยฃ350,000 a week, as discussions over a new deal continue.

De Gea has been strongly linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus, while links to Real Madrid are never far from the surface after going so close to moving to the Bernabeu in 2015.

The 28-year-old has been named the club’s player of the year on a record four occasions during an outstanding spell at Old Trafford, but he made a serious of high-profile blunders towards the end of the campaign.


Asked about De Gea’s form towards the end of the 2018/19 season, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Of course we trust him, he’s been fantastic this season.

“Towards the end now he’s been in the headlines maybe for the wrong reasons, but, as I’ve said so many times, he has to deal with that.

“The goalkeeping department are a fantastic group together, with Emilio (Alvarez, goalkeeping coach), Sergio (Romero), Lee (Grant) and David.

“They’ve been such a tight-knit group, so they’ve experienced better times obviously than just now.”
