David De Gea’s Manchester United future has reportedly been secured after agreeing a new six-year contract at the club.
The giant new contract will keep the Spaniard at Old Trafford until 2025 and is worth around £375,000-a-week, reports the Telegraph.
Currently paid £200,000-a-week, it is an enormous increase in pay for the 28-year-old which will make him the highest paid goalkeeper on the planet.
There had been much speculation over the future of the Spain international, with just one year left on his current deal and interest from Paris Saint-Germain in his signature.
However, all that talk will die down now De Gea has confirmed he will stay where he is for the foreseeable future and sign a new deal when he returns, with his team-mates, from the pre-season tour in Asia.
De Gea started the game against Inter Milan on Saturday in Singapore, which the Red Devils won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Mason Greenwood. It has been a perfect string of results for United on their pre-season trip, having won twice in Australia, over Perth Glory and Leeds United.
Summer signings have been slow to emerge, with just Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka arriving thus far, but the added stability of sorting out De Gea’s future will be a boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
De Gea suffered a drastic drop in form in the second half of last season, but the Manchester Evening News report that it was the support that Solskjaer and his staff showed the keeper was a big influence on his decision to stay at Old Trafford.
