Loads of Man Utd fans have mixed reactions to £290,000 p/w David De Gea contract

David De Gea is finally closing on signing a new contract at Manchester United, according to a report in the The Guardian.

The Spaniard’s current deal runs out next summer, but it is believed he will pen a new long term deal worth up to £290,000 per week.

Uncertainty has surrounded De Gea’s future for weeks now, but it’s great to eventually hear some positive news regarding contract talks.

Despite performing poorly towards the end of last season, the goalkeeper remains one of the best in his position in the world, and certainly one of the most important players at the club.

This was evidenced by the fact only he and Paul Pogba from United were nominees for the Fifapro World 11, in which 55 of the world’s best players have been selected.

De Gea signing a new deal would give boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer one less thing to worry about, so will be welcomed by many Reds.

However, there is a still a concern amongst some that the reports may not be true as we have read endless stories about his future in recent months.

Let’s hope we can see the 29-year-old sign on the dotted line in the coming days…
