Bonafont has close ties to de Gea, having previously held an exclusive interview with the 23-year-old Spanish international.
United desperately want to tie de Gea down for the future, with La Liga giants Real Madrid monitoring his situation closely.
The keeper has come on leaps and bounds in recent months, putting in an especially brilliant performance in the Old Trafford victory over Everton, and earning a start for the national side ahead of legendary figure Iker Casillas.
The new deal will put de Gea in the same bracket as some of the world’s most renowned stoppers, such as Manuel Neuer, Gianluigi Buffon and Thibaut Courtois.
