David de Gea rejects new Manchester United contract offer

Published 63 Comments

Manchester United's final attempt to keep David de Gea at Old Trafford has failed after the Spanish goalkeeper rejected yet another offer of an improved contract according to Marca.

De Gea has less than 12 months to run on his current contract and is keen on a move to Real Madrid this summer.

He has already turned down one extension worth around £200,000-per-week and is free to walk away for nothing next summer unless Manchester United and Real Madrid can agree a fee this month, which doesn't look likely as things stand.

According to Marca the Red Devils are not resigned to losing their two-time player of the season just yet, and have moved to keep him from the clutches of Madrid - however their plan has backfired.

The Spanish newspaper claim that the powers that be at Old Trafford have offered De Gea a contract worth €14 million-per-year over six years which the 24-year-old has rejected. To rub salt in the wound, Marca claim that De Gea has agreed terms with Madrid worth €5 million-per-season, which means he will be sacrificing an incredible €9 million every year.

De Gea hasn't featured in either of Manchester United's Premier League games so far, with boss Louis van Gaal claiming that the 'keeper asked to be left out - something his camp have since denied.


Sergio Romero has stepped into his place however Van Gaal has publicly insisted there is a way back into the first team for De Gea, who has been included in the Red Devils' Champions League squad, if he does indeed stay beyond the close of the transfer window.

According to previous reports Manchester United are willing to let him leave for nothing rather than let him go to Madrid for a reduced price.

Do you think Manchester United should sell De Gea this summer or let him go for nothing next year?
