Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested David De Gea is on the brink of signing a new contract with Manchester United.
After demands around the deal saw negotiations stall last season, The Sun claims that De Gea ‘is ready to sign an eye-watering £91million five-year deal when Manchester United return from their pre-season tour.’
The Sun adds: ‘United have increased their £300,000-a-week offer to a whopping £350,000 in a bid to keep their superstar stopper.’
Paris St Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid – a club he was so close to joining in 2015 – have been linked to the Spain international, but Solskjaer is confident he will remain at United.
“Yeah, he will play tomorrow (against Leeds),” the United manager said. “And hopefully we can agree (a deal) with David, as I’ve said a few times.
“I think that’ll be up to David and the club to announce if that happens. If and when.”
De Gea joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and he has won the club’s Player of the Year award on a record four occasions.
