Chelsea made a startling bid for Man Utd’s superstar David de Gea as a replacement for Thibaut Courtois, if reports are to be believed.
Negotiations between English Premier League side Manchester United and their star goalkeeper David De Gea over a new, improved contract offer has a twist in the tale. If reports from Daily Record are to be believed, Manchester United have not yet agreed David De Gea’s wage demands.
David De Gea was a Real Madrid target, a player who topped their wishlist each summer. but the Los Blancos decided to sign Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea. This has its effect on Manchester United and De Gea as the former finds that latter would not have any more suitors who could match their asking price.
Despite their failure to dominate England in the recent years, the performance of David De Gea over the years have always been a source of solace for the fans of the club. The 27-year-old has always been on stunning form for the Red Devils and has also won the club’s Player of the Year four times in last 5-years. He has managed to deliver some jaw-dropping saves that would give one and all goosebumps.
According to the same report, if Manchester United agrees to David De Gea’s new wage demands, he will become the highest earner at the club, surpassing Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez. If United agrees to De Gea’s demands, he will earn £350,000 a week. However, Ed Woodward doesn’t want to offer David De Gea the same salary Pogba and Sanchez earn.
De Gea’s current contract with Manchester United runs until next summer and the former English Premier League Champions can further extend the contract for one more year. However, it remains to be seen if United will agree to Gea’s demands, who has already established his name as one of the best goalkeepers.
While Real Madrid are unlikely to go for David De Gea again in the coming transfer windows, PSG could try to lure away the services of this Spanish International if he is unhappy at Manchester United. There is no denying the class and quality De Gea has. Mourinho reportedly wants to see De Gea commit his future to the club.
