Manchester United prepare huge wage offer for David de Gea

Manchester United are ready to offer goalkeeper David de Gea an incredible mega-contract to keep him at the club, according to reports.

The Spanish stopper has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent weeks, with Real Madrid being mooted as a potential future destination for the former Atletico star.


However, speculation in the Daily Express today claims Louis van Gaal is ready to put forward a huge offer in the region of £200,000-a-week to keep the 24-year-old with the Red Devils.

De Gea joined Manchester United back in 2011, with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson spending close to £18million to bring the highly-rated young goalkeeper to the Premier League.

There were initial concerns over his suitability to the English game however, with some high-profile mistakes punctuating his first season with the Red Devils.

His game gradually improved and he helped Manchester United to a title the following year, before being named the club's Player of the Season during David Moyes' reign with the champions.

De Gea has continued to be one of the club's top performers under Louis van Gaal, but Los Blancos are now keen and could land the player as a part of a huge deal that would see Gareth Bale move in the opposite direction.

Heart over head

That appears to depend on what the goalkeeper himself wants, with De Gea saying only yesterday (Saturday) that the decision on his future would be made with his heart rather than simply following the money.

Either way, he's likely to earn a decent living, with the two clubs recently named the richest in world football.

It's his ability on the pitch which leads to such a wage though, and Manchester United will firstly want the keeper to focus on the task at Old Trafford. Finishing in the top four in the Premier League is a must and with De Gea on top form, that is likely to happen.

Securing his future with the club would be a massive coup for everyone connected with the club, but it does not appear to be a formality at this stage.
