Manchester United are “confident” that David De Gea will commit his future to the club by signing a new five-year deal at Old Trafford, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are back in talks with the Spanish goalkeeper about his future and are hoping to get him to commit to a new long-term contract at the club.

The same story says that Manchester United are ready to up their offer from £300,000 a week to £350,000 a week in order to get the shot-stopper to stay at the club.

It is claimed in the same story that the move would be a significant jump on his current £200,000 a week deal at Old Trafford.

The same article says that Manchester United will offer him a four-year deal, the option to extend for a further year on the club’s side.

De Gea’s situation at Old Trafford has been a source of uncertainty in recent weeks because his current contract is set to expire at the end of next season.

The 28-year-old is widely considered to be one of the top goalkeepers in European football, but he suffered an alarming dip in form towards the end of the last campaign.
