Man United Set To Make De Gea World Highest-Paid Goalkeeper
De Gea, Manchester United goalkeeper, looks set to stay at the club after a new £ 350,000-a-week contract was given, reports the UK Times.
The present agreement for Spain International is set to expire at the end of next season, meaning that United could lose their first-choice goalkeeper next summer on a free transfer.
The Red Devils are unwilling to meet De Gea’s wage demands, as the 28-year-old had demanded parity with the team’s top earner, Alexis Sanchez, who earns £400,000 a week before bonuses.
But senior officials have taken a major step forward, by improving their contract offer to De Gea, who currently earns £200,000 a week.
The proposed five-year deal would make De Gea the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world.
De Gea has attracted strong interest from Paris Saint-Germain, but United are not keen on selling him this summer.
