Manchester United are going to offer David De Gea a four year deal worth £250,000 a week in a last gasp attempt to keep the Spaniard at the club, reports The Sun.
The Red Devils are even willing to let the 24-year-old leave the club for a set fee in two years time just to keep him over the summer. What’s more, they have told De Gea’s agent Jorge Mendes that they are willing to keep Radamel Falcao on loan until next January in return for signing a new deal. However, the Colombian may choose to not accept after struggling for game time over the last campaign.
This desperation is an attempt to keep their goalkeeper away from Real Madrid, who are interested in him as a replacement for the ageing Iker Casillas. Los Blancos are thought to have agreed a £130,000 a week deal with the Spain international. With only one year left on the goalie’s contract, the Spanish side are hoping to sign him on the cheap.
His potential deal to stay at Old Trafford would rise to £250,000 a week over the duration of the contract with built in pay rises. Over the entire four years he would earn £42 million. Could this be enough to persuade the former Atletico Madrid man to stay in the Premier League?
