Manchester United are reportedly set to offer David de Gea a new contract that would make him the highest paid player at the club, eclipsing the likes of Alexis Sanchez.
It only seems fair that the club’s most consistent and impressive layer for much of the last five years earns more than the rest, especially when De Gea is said to be considering his future.
Losing the Spanish No.1 would unquestionably be a massive blow for United, so fans will be glad to hear it seems the club are willing to do everything to keep him at Old Trafford.
Calciomercato report on De Gea being given this huge contract, citing unnamed members of the Spanish press.
Though most top clubs in Europe have top goalkeepers nowadays, De Gea would not be short of offers if he decided not to extend his stay with the Reds, and it’s easy to imagine he may also feel tempted to move on given our lack of recent success.
United will have to hope the big money can persuade De Gea to stay.
