De Gea offered take it or leave it deal

Manchester United have sought to break the impasse over the future of goalkeeper David de Gea by offering him a new deal worth almost £85 million over five years.

That works out at a weekly salary of £350,000, but United bosses have made it clear to the player and his agents that the offer is as good as it is going to get, and the club are not prepared to offer more.

De Gea has been locked in negotiations with United over a new deal for nearly 18 months, with the two sides yet to find a satisfactory resolution. United are desperate to keep the Spanish international, but feel that want he is demanding is exorbitant. For his part, the Spaniard argues that Alexis Sanchez is on £500,000 a week and he should earn something close to that, because he has a much greater value to the team than the Chilean.

United’s position though is undermined by the fact that he has now entered the final year of his contract, and can leave as a free agent next summer.
