David De Gea is set to end the speculation about his future by signing a new five-year contract with Manchester United, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the 28-year-old is ready to agree a £350,000 a week deal to keep him at Old Trafford for the foreseeable future.

The deal is set to make De Gea the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world and it represents a significant pay-rise on his current contract, which is said to be worth around £200,000 a week.

According to the same story, De Gea wanted parity with Alexis Sanchez on around £500,000 a week, but he will now earn around £350,000 per week.

The same story says that there have been fresh talks between Manchester United and his agent Jorge Mendes and the goalkeeper is now close to penning a new contract.

Manchester United will be aiming to challenge for a top-four finish next season after they finished sixth and without a trophy last term.

The Red Devils have jetted off to Australia to begin their pre-season tour as they look to try and get themselves in the best possible shape for next term.
