De Gea to end exit rumors by signing new contract

Manchester United: De Gea to end exit rumors by becoming highest paid goalkeeper in history

July 15, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Red Devils' shotstopper is staying put.

Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea is set to end all transfer speculations by penning a new contract at Manchester United. The purported long-term deal will make the 28-year-old the highest paid shotstopper in the history of world football with a £375,000-a-week being lined up.

The latest development should let fans of the Red Devils breathe a sigh of relief with previous indications suggesting that De Gea was angling towards leaving on a free transfer when his current contract ends next summer. The Spaniard, who currently earns £200,000-a-week, has consistently turned down renewal talks amid claims that he had doubts about the Old Trafford outfit's ambition.

This, coupled with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side's reluctance to match his wage demands, commiting his future was a far cry for the four-time Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year awardee. Nonetheless, a significant breakthrough has apparently been made as Daily Mail claims the goalkeeper is keen on extending his stay with the 20-time English champions.

De Gea is expected to sign the new deal when Manchester United returns from its preseason tour. While the base figure of the 28-year-old goalie's wage per week is £375,000, the Daily Mail's report hints at the amount significantly increasing after bonuses.
