Manchester United set to offer goalkeeper David De Gea improved new contract [Star on Sunday]

De GeaMan United are looking to spend the sum of £18 million on keeping one of their star players at the club, goalkeeper David De Gea.

The Spaniard has been one of the few bright spots in United’s dire campaign and picked up gongs at the club’s recent season awards ceremony.

United are hoping that an improved wage, £52,000 a week to £85,000,  will keep him at the club for the foreseeable future.

De Gea initially struggled to adapt to life in England and the physicality of the Premier League but in the last two seasons has improved markedly and shown his quality.
