De Gea finally set to sign new United deal

David de Gea is set to sign a bumper new six-year contract with Manchester United, putting an end to one of the longest-running sagas in the Premier League.

The “will he stay/will he go” mini soap opera has been running on behind the scenes at Old Trafford for the best part of two seasons, but the 28-year old has finally agreed to a new long-term deal which will make him the highest paid goalkeeper in the world, with a weekly wage of £375,000.

De Gea, who made his first appearance for United in their pre-season tour on Saturday in the narrow win against Inter Milan, will sign the new contract – worth £117 million over its duration – once the team returns to England next week.

The decision will end once and for all the speculation linking him with a move to either Paris Saint-Germain or Juventus, who have previously been linked with him.
