Latest Rumours on New David De Gea Contract

Real Madrid will be on the lookout for a new goalkeeper and while all the signs point towards them turning their attention towards Thibaut Courtois, De Gea's potential availability might just tempt them to reignite their interest in the Spaniard.

And they doubled their lead three minutes into the second half after a quick free-kick from Jeffrey Schlupp to Patrick van Aanholt caught the United defence napping and the left back fired past David de Gea.

At actually saving shots, De Gea is best keeper in world now surely.

A previous report has claimed that United are prepared to pay De Gea in the region of £350,000 per week in order to keep the goalkeeper at the club for the prime years of his career.

Although United hold an option to extend De Gea's deal until the summer of 2020, both sides recognise that an individual elected the Premier League's best goalkeeper for four of the last five seasons merits an upgrade on his financial terms. The Spain global has less than 16 months remaining on his current deal and is once again the subject of interest from hometown club Real Madrid.

When De Gea joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2011, he endured a testing start to life in the Premier League.

De Gea is also nearing seven years at Old Trafford, with a total of 294 outings being made in all competitions.

I'm honestly surprised De Gea has stayed for as long as he has at Manchester United.

Real Madrid also made an early move by reaching out to super-agent Jorge Mendes and were told that it will cost them as much as €100million (£87m) to prise De Gea from Old Trafford.

United will be keen to see De Gea maintain the same immaculate standards he's set in recent years and to potentially develop into a leader too.
