Manchester United

De Gea demanding big money deal to stay

10th February 2019, 15:10 by Simon Barlow

David De Gea is reportedly insisting on wages of £350,000-a-week to sign a new long-term deal at Manchester United.

The Sunday Mirror claims the 28-year-old Spaniard is eyeing a new deal that would make him the best-paid goalkeeper in the world and the second highest earner on United's books, behind £400,000-a-week Alexis Sanchez.

In November, the Red Devils used their option to extend De Gea's contract to stop him from falling out of contract at the end of this season, buying them some extra time to tie him down to a long-term agreement.

The ex-Atletico Madrid star is happy in Manchester and says the appointment of caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought a lot of enjoyment to the first-team squad.

He told Telefoot: "Everyone feels good with him (Solskjaer), he wants us to enjoy ourselves on the pitch, that we are just ourselves and that is what we are in the process of doing with these victories. For us, it is magnificent."

And ahead of Tuesday's last-16 clash with Paris Saint-Germain, De Gea has revealed the target he has to play in the Champions League final.

"It will be very tight," he added.

"We have a team that can win something. Paul Pogba is fundamental for us. Anthony Martial is unstoppable and we will do everything to make the Champions League final.

"It will be an intense round of 16 match, a great match to play, very special, against a very good team that has exceptional individuals, amongst some of the best at the moment. They are the favourites but we will be very motivated."
