Manchester United will reportedly activate the one-year extension clause in David de Gea’s contract in a bid to fend off interest from Real Madrid.
De Gea has again been attracting the attentions of the La Liga giants who saw a deal to bring the stopper to Madrid collapse in the eleventh hour two years ago.
Jose Mourinho is desperate to hold onto his no.1 goalkeeper and has told United to trigger the one-year extension in the contract he signed in 2015.
De Gea has two years left on his current deal, but the triggering of the extension would keep him at the club until 2020.
The Sun claim United will hand De Gea a decent pay rise as well with the stopper set to go from earning £180,000-a-week to £200,000-a-week.
The new deal would make De Gea not only one of the highest earners at United, but also one of the best paid stars in the Premier League.
