Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is in Manchester today to conclude contract negotiations with goalkeeper David de Gea, according to Ian Abrahams.
The talkSPORT journalist took to Twitter earlier this morning to suggest that De Gea could now sign a new deal with the Red Devils sooner rather than later.
De Gea, of course, looked set to complete a move to Real Madrid this past summer, however the deal failed to materialise on transfer deadline day in Spain.

And now, with the Red Devils reportedly offering De Gea a new five-year deal to remain at the club, it appears that he could now stay in Manchester for the foreseeable future.
In fact, it has been claimed that the 'keeper has been offered as much as £200,000-a-week to commit his future with the Red Devils.
Abrahams tweeted: "Ed Woodward in Manchester today to seal the deal with @ManUtd keeper & soon to be loaded David De Gea"
Huge news for United
There's no getting away from the fact that De Gea is one of the best goalkeepers in world football, so securing his services for the long-term really would prove a major coup for the club.
Of course, at one stage, it looked almost certain that the 'keeper was set for pastures new, but the saga could finally have a happy ending for Manchester United fans.
De Gea, who may well start for the first time this season on home soil against Liverpool tomorrow, has the ability to help the Red Devils push for the Premier League title this term. He really is that important to the cause in Manchester.
