Man United move to agree mega £20.8m-a-year deal with 28-year-old

In recent reports that will wow United fans, the club have agreed to tie David De Gea down to a new contract that will earn him around £400,000-a-week.

Earlier in the week, the 28-year-old was reportedly interested in continuing with Manchester United only if his wages was increased by 50% and it seems his wishes have been fulfilled and even more.

If the terms of the contract are concurred to by the Spanish international, he will become the highest paid goalkeeper in the world.

And the contract when agreed is highly deserved given that the current Premier league golden glove winner has been outstanding since he joined he Reds a couple of years ago.

Those who hugely criticised him after a shaky world Cup and a nervy start to the Premier league campaign can be rest assured that the Spaniard is back to his best, especially since the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as interim boss.

According to stats, De Gea made 11 saves against Tottenham Hotspurs last week to earn his team a well deserved three points away from home. A magnificent showing of a master at his best.

Manchester United have been involved with World class shot stoppers the likes of Schmeichel and Van der Sar but De Gea is easily the best amongst them in my opinion.

He has won the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year prize on four occasions (four times in the past five years), more than anyone else since the award was introduced in 1988.

The La Roja star is indispensable to United moving forward and the news of a propose deal to tie him down for the future would greatly delight the United faithful.
