Manchester United are ready to reward David De Gea's form with a massive new five-year contract, worth around £140,000-a-week.

De Gea has been nothing short of sensational so far this season, leading to persistent speculation that Real Madrid will try to make the Spanish stopper their new number one in the summer.

The Red Devils are acutely aware of that interest and will do everything in their power to stop the deal from happening, which means De Gea is set to more than double his weekly wage.

De Gea deal to beat Joe Hart

De Gea will reportedly get the chance to earn more than Manchester City stopper Joe Hart, who is also in the process of renegotiating the terms of his current deal as a reward for a consistently high standard of performance.

United believe De Gea's fresh terms will put him in a salary bracket that stops Madrid or any other top European club prising their top performer away next summer, although he has to sign on the dotted line first.

Better late than never

The Sun believe that United have finally decided to take affirmative action when it comes to securing De Gea's future, primarily because there's little doubt he's been the club's best player over the last 18 months.

United have De Gea under contract until 2016 under the terms of his current contract, but are ready to break the bank to keep him well beyond that and want the deal done and dusted before the January window opens.

A bumper new deal worth £36 million over five years will put De Gea in line with the likes of Juan Mata and Ashley Young, but still some way behind Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao, Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney in the bracket of United's highest earners.

The contract offer still puts De Gea among the highest paid goalkeepers in the world, but it remains to be seen if its enough to resist the lure of a return to Spain in the long-term.
