Manchester United must sign quality players in the summer transfer window and more importantly, they must hold onto the key players present in the current squad.
Spanish international David De Gea has been United’s best player in the past few years and reports suggest that the Red Devils are close to sealing a new deal with him.
According to Manchester Evening News, the former Atletico Madrid star is set to commit his future to Old Trafford after agreeing terms of a new five year contract.
The 27-year-old shot stopper featured in 37 league games for Man United last season, conceded 28 goals and kept 18 clean sheets to win the Golden Glove prize.
De Gea is arguably the best goal keeper in the world but last night, he had a shocking game for Spain against Portugal in the World Cup. The contest ended 3-3.
European Champions Real Madrid have been interested in signing the Spanish goalie for a long time and as per MEN, Florentino Perez has accepted that it would cost a mammoth fee of £100million to bring De Gea to the Bernabeu.
The former La Liga star currently earns (Mirror Sport) around £200,000-a-week. As far as the new terms are concerned, recent reports have not talked about any figure but back in April, The Sun exclusively reported that he would get a new five year deal worth £350,000-a-week.
