Despite Paris Saint-Germain being linked with an interest in a £60million summer bid for De Gea, it looks like he’s set to agree on a new £400,000 a week deal at Old Trafford, making him the highest paid player in the world in his position, according to the Sun.

It goes without saying that, as wages continue to rise, this also makes him the highest paid ‘keeper ever, in a major statement of ambition by the Red Devils.
