David De Gea risks pricing himself out of new Man United deal – report
The Man United goalkeeper is hoping to secure a contract in excess of £350,000 a week, according to a report
David De Gea is at risk of pricing himself out of a new Manchester United deal, according to a report in England.
The London Evening Standard is reporting that Manchester United are prepared to offer De Gea a contract extension worth £350,000 a week.
Such a figure would see the Spain international come close to level terms with the club’s best-paid player Alexis Sanchez, who is said to be on around £400,000 a week in the same report.
The same article states that De Gea has not been able to reach an agreement with the Red Devils despite their offer of a huge pay-rise.
According to the same story, the Manchester United shot-stopper would be confident of securing a contract worth at least £400,000-a-week if De Gea allowed his current deal to expire.
The Spanish shot stopper has less than 18 months left to run on his contract and Manchester United vice chairman is eager to resolve their prized asset’s future, according to London Evening Standard.
De Gea has established himself as the Premier League’s best goalkeeper since his move to Manchester United in a £17m deal from Atletico Madrid in the 2011 summer transfer window.
The 28-year-old has won a Premier League title, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League during his five and a half seasons at Old Trafford.
