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.
