Man United’s £200,000-a-week star linked with Paris Saint-Germain: report


Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea has been associated with a potential move to Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the current campaign. The French giants are apparently looking for an upgrade on Alphonse Areola after their failure to progress beyond the round of 16 stage in the Champions League.

According to French outlet Telefoot, Les Parisiens are said to have an eye on De Gea as they seek to bolster their goalkeeper department ahead of next season. The Spaniard is however not their sole option in their shortlist with Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois and AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma also identified as potential alternatives.

De Gea’s future has come under question over the past few months, and much of it has resulted from the United board being reluctant to reward him for his performances. The 27-year-old has just 15 months left on his existing deal with the option of a year’s extension clause, but the hierarchy should quickly act to commit his long-term future at Old Trafford.

The goalkeeper has spoken fondly about his progress during his time with United, and he appears open to prolonging his stay, considering long-time admirers Real Madrid have regressed, domestically at least this term.

The £200k-per-week star is presently on a basic package of around £180,000-a-week, and a recent report from The Sun has suggested that the club may have to nearly double his package whilst rewarding a fresh contract extension.
