The Spaniard goal-keeper David De Gea is ready to commit his long-term future to Manchester United as he is waiting for a new contract offer.
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea stays prepared to commit his future to the club with another long-term contract. However, he has put the decision on hold as he looks to be waiting for a bumper new salary package, which would put him amongst the highest paid earners at the club.
De Gea was United’s hero on Sunday in the wake of making 11 saves which helped United secure 1-0 win over Tottenham at Wembley. A number of his teammates kept running over to him at the full-time whistle to praise him for the outstanding performance.
It is now reported that the Spaniard is eager to remain with United, according to a report by ‘The Daily Mail’. The report suggests that De Gea is anxious to enter an agreement with United to end the speculation over his future, however, anticipates a ‘reasonable offer’.
It is recommended that any new agreement stands to be a noteworthy enhancement for his current £200,000-per-week bargain, with week after week compensation expected to reach, and potentially even outperform, £300,000, including bonuses.
Will David De Gea sign a New Contract at Manchester United?
As things stand, De Gea is expected to be out of the agreement at Old Trafford in the late spring of 2020 after United set off a year expansion clause that kept it from expiring this year.
Having joined the club from Atletico Madrid to succeed the resigning star Edwin van der Sar in 2011, De Gea is one of the longest-serving players at United, behind just Antonio Valencia and Chris Smalling.
It was claimed a month ago that 28-year-old De Gea told his friends that he was near marking another United contract that would keep him at the club ‘well into his thirties’.
It has also been speculated that De Gea will be given the permanent Captaincy at Manchester United as Antonio Valencia’s departure looks imminent. The caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer indeed provided De Gea with the armband when his side faced Huddersfield at Old Trafford on the Boxing Day.
