Man Utd star David De Gea to double money by signing incredible new £400,000-a-week contract… making him world's highest-paid goalkeeperDecember 15, 2018
The Spaniard, 28, has been locked in talks over the contract — but has now told pals he is on the verge of agreeing new terms.
United want to make him the world’s best-paid keeper in a wage rise that could tip over £400,000-a-week after bonuses.
He will join Alexis Sanchez among the top earners at Old Trafford.
De Gea’s current deal runs out at the end of next season after United recently triggered a one-year option they held.
Paris Saint-Germain had been leading the chase for the stopper — and were prepared to bid £60million in the summer.
They were also happy to wait a further year to land him on a free as a replacement for veteran Gianluigi Buffon, 40.
But De Gea’s new deal will tie him to United until he is well into his 30s.
The Red Devils are willing to do everything possible to keep De Gea, as they believe he is a genuine world-class star.
Boss Jose Mourinho recently insisted that De Gea wanted to stay. They share the same agent in Jorge Mendes.
Mourinho said: “If we want to be Manchester United, we need the best players in the world. We have the best goalkeeper in the world.”
PSG are pushing hard for De Gea so sealing his future would be a massive boost for under-fire Mourinho.
