Report – Man Utd close to finally agreeing £15million-a-year deal with De Gea

Manchester United have been in talks with David De Gea over a new deal for a long time but the Spaniard has not put pen to paper as yet.

There have been several twists in this saga and the latest update suggests that the Red Devils are on the verge of agreeing a fresh deal with their first choice shot stopper.

Transfer: Man Utd tipped to secure £90million+ signing of “really special” player in winter

Last month, The Sun exclusively revealed that the Old Trafford club are worried about losing the 28-year-old goalie in January and are looking at options to replace him.

However, recently, The Guardian have reported that Man Utd are close to finally agreeing new terms with De Gea that will make him earn a similar wage to Paul Pogba i.e. £290,000-a-week (£15million-a-year).

The former Atletico Madrid star is still one of the best goalkeepers in the world but it will be fair to say that in the past 18 months, his performances have been highly inconsistent for both the club and the country.

In the current campaign, his first major mistake came up against Crystal Palace. Van Aanholt scored a late late winner from a shot that should have been easily saved by De Gea but he messed it up and we ended up losing.

If he is not fully committed, we can continue to expect average performances from him. So, in my view, he should be offloaded and replaced in the winter transfer window.

In your opinion, should United agree a new deal with De Gea?


  1. If he doesn’t take the £290m then he should get out of the team. He is replaceable. You can’t have a player who is declining getting an improved deal.
    This is sick.

  2. Pity. He’s not what he used to be and is now costing us points with his lack of form and interest in playing for the club. I think we should sell him as soon as possible to recoup some money and then get Henderson back from Sheffield United at the end of the season.
