The Reds would be concerned with this situation as only in November was his 1 year extension triggered meaning he may be a free agent at the end of next season. Ever since his switch from Atletico Madrid to Manchester, he has very quickly established himself as one of the world’s best goalkeeper. He has constantly given fine performances and saved United on many occasions.
But according reports, The Spanish International’s new £350,000-a-week contract is facing many complications because of agent’s fees. If he signs this contract, de Gea would become highest paid goal keeper in the world. Although Manchester United are still confident of convincing him to stay and put pen to paper on a deal eventually. The 28 year old will have only 1 season left on his contract at the end of this season which all also make top clubs line up at United’s door to secure the services of the Spaniard.
