The news will come as major boost to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has been desperate to keep hold of one of his most prized assets as he undergoes a summer rebuild at Old Trafford
David De Gea’s long-running contract saga is now nearing a conclusion – with Manchester United convinced the goalkeeper will sign a new five-year deal.
The Sun claim the Spain international, who has been at Old Trafford since 2011, is ready to commit his future to the club after being offered a £350,000-a-week contract.
The Red Devils are desperate to keep hold of one of their most prized assets, hence why they’ve offered a £150,000-a-week increase on his current deal.
Despite that, De Gea will still be some way short of the club’s highest earner, Alexis Sanchez, who earns a quite staggering £505,000 a week.
It is believed the offer will be a four-year contract – with United having the option to trigger a further year on top of that.
De Gea, whose contract is up at the end of the 2019/20 season, is now reportedly happy to stay at United after previously having second thoughts over where his future lay.
The 28-year-old made a number of high-profile blunders last season, which is believed to have turned off the likes of Real Madrid making a move this summer.
The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper was on the cusp of a dream move to the Bernabeu in 2015, only for the deal to collapse on transfer deadline day.
