In-form Old Trafford custodian has earned a new deal.
Man United are readying an improved contract for keeper David de Gea in an attempt to fend off interest from Real Madrid according to the Daily Mirror.
The Spanish giants are said to be ready to offer £25m for the 23 year old Old Trafford keeper, with a view to the former Atletico Madrid man replacing Iker Casillas between the sticks.
It’s a move the Premier League side are looking to quash by offering the in-form custodian a five year deal worth as much as £120k a week, which is more than double his current salary.
De Gea, who signed for Man United in the summer of 2011, is tied down to a contract until 2016 but clearly Louis van Gaal is keen to retain the goalie’s services beyond that point and he has certainly done enough this term to warrant a lucrative new deal.
