The Spanish goalkeeper’s contract expires next summer and United would surely be thinking of persuading David de Gea to renew his contract with them. In case, the Red Devils fail to persuade him, they should sell him, atleast not lose him for free as the keeper costs Man Utd some serious wage bills.
No doubt, De Gea’s first preference is to stay at Old Trafford and he isn’t keen on moving to Paris like Herrera. Reports suggest that Ander Herrera has agreed a pre-contract with the Parisians.
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is reportedly demanding a £350,000-a-week contract deal, if he is to commit to his future at Old Trafford. The Spaniard wants to be the second highest paid player at United after Alexis Sanchez.
Meanwhile, United have their problems amplified with the French Champions looking to sign David de Gea during the summer. Such situations could force United to meet his salary demands amid interests from PSG.

Whenever situations like these arise, there are always teams who capitalise. And PSG would surely be lurking around to get one of the best keepers in the world, either for free or by paying a hefty fee.
In this conundrum, PSG could come out as winners as they have an ageing Gigi Buffon and an inexperienced Alphonso Areola in their squad.
However, United are reluctant to renew De gea’s contract by paying so much, but remain confident that a compromise can be reached in the near future. Nevertheless, the Spaniard feels as though he deserves a raise from his current £200,000-a-week deal, given he has firmly established himself as one of the world’s Best Keepers.
Meanwhile, David de Gea reportedly wants to stay at the club, but will only do so if United prove their loyalty to him by offering him the £350,000-a-week deal which the Spanish international feels he deserves.
Nevertheless, it is expected that there would be no shortage of suitors for David de Gea if he becomes available. The likes of PSG and Juventus have previously been linked with the Spaniard, whilst Real Madrid could opt to return for De Gea as they seek to put an end to the defensive and goalkeeping inconsistencies which have tormented their season.
Zidane faces a tough task ahead of him deciding who should be between the sticks next season, and among the two front runners Courtois and Navas, it won’t be surprising if David de Gea becomes their No.1.
