David De Gea wants to stay at Manchester United but the Spanish goalkeeper is holding out for a contract worth £300,000 a week, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Manchester United number one is eager to commit his long-term future at the 20-time English champions.

The same article states that De Gea wants a substantial upgrade on his current £200,000-a-week deal, which the Spanish shot stopper signed back in September 2015.

According to the same story, the former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper wants to end any lingering uncertainty surrounding his future at Old Trafford by committing to a lengthy new deal at the 20-time English champions.

The Daily Mail adds that the 28-year-old’s representatives have held negotiations with Manchester United but no agreement has been reached between the two parties.

De Gea has little over 18 months left to run on his current Manchester United deal after the Red Devils triggered a 12-month extension clause in the Spanish goalkeeper’s contract at the end of last year.

Manchester United handed Alexis Sanchez a contract worth £350,000 a week when the Chile international completed a move to Old Trafford from Arsenal in the 2018 January transfer window to make the forward the club’s best-paid player.

De Gea made 11 saves during Manchester United’s 1-0 victory at Spurs at Wembley last weekend to help extend their winning run to six games.
