Manchester United are ‘back’ around the negotiating table with David de Gea as they look to thrash out a new deal ahead of the season, according to reports.

In November, United activated a one-year extension on David De Gea’s contract, which at least protected their asset for another season – and talks had seemed to stall over a new deal.

Previous reports claimed that United would have to pay De Gea a ‘whopping golden handshake’ of around £20m to leave for PSG this summer rather than leave for nothing next summer.

However, despite links with a move away from the club this summer, The Sun now claim that United are ‘confident’ this new offer will be accepted by De Gea.

An offer of £300,000 a week was previously on the table and the Red Devils ‘are ready to increase that to £350,000 a week to tempt the Spanish keeper to stay put.’

It would be a four-year contract with the option of staying an extra season, while the salary would be a huge increase on his current wages of around £200,000 a week.

A deal is still up in the air, though, with De Gea potentially waiting to see ‘what business they do in this summer’s transfer market.’

So far the Red Devils have managed to bring in Daniel James from Swansea and it will no doubt take more than that to convince him to stay.
