Where would Manchester United be without David De Gea?
De Gea has come to United’s rescue time and time again over the last few seasons, earning his side some priceless points with his commanding performances between the sticks.
The Spaniard can look unbeatable at times when he dons that famous shirt and has rightfully been named the clubs player of the year in four of the last five seasons.
However, De Gea’s relationship with the club looks to be heading towards choppy waters after talks over a new contract stalled.
De Gea is reportedly demanding that he be paid the same amount as Alexis Sanchez but the club simply won’t budge.

You can be certain that some of Europe’s biggest clubs will smell blood in the water and will be monitoring the situation very closely.
One such club that could turn De Gea’s head are French champions, Paris Saint-Germain.
The French side are in the market for new gloveman with 40-year-old Gianluigi Buffon set to retire soon and De Gea could be the ideal replacement.
On top of that, his astronomical wage demands would be pocket change for a club with some of the deepest pockets in football.
It will come as no surprise then that reports have started to emerge that the Paris club have tabled a bid for Old Trafford man, matching the very wage demands United have baulked at.
According to a report in The Sun, it is believed that De Gea could ‘walk out’ on United if they fail to match the offer PSG have laid down.
It seems strange that, having endured some of the toughest years the club has faced in recent memory, De Gea would choose to walk out now but PSG’s offer will be a mightily difficult one to resist.
The Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revolution looks to have done little to change his mind and if PSG continues to knock, they might just get their man.
With De Gea’s contract set to expire next year, United will have to make sure a move happens this summer if they want to avoid losing one of their most prized assets for free.
It could be an interesting few months ahead at Carrington.
