David De Gea & Real Madrid
One of the rumours which has been doing the rounds for years have been claims linking David De Gea with Real Madrid.
De Gea is arguably the only world class player on Man United’s books right now.
The Spanish stopper is widely considered to be the best goalie in the Premier League, if not the world.
Man United have a league high 15 clean sheets, while De Gea is the fourth highest save maker in the division have completed 93 stops this season.
But Real Madrid’s hopes of trying to sign the Red Devils number one could be over as United prepare to lock De Gea down to a world record contract.
Man United world record De Gea deal
The Star on Sunday detail how Man United plan to keep De Gea at the Theatre of Dreams:
Manchester United will make David De Gea the highest paid goalkeeper in the world on £350,000 a week.
That sensational new contract is designed to keep Spain’s stopper out of the clutches of long-time suitors Real Madrid.
The deal will see the keeper’s pay packet rocket from the £210k-a-week deal he signed three years ago.
Should De Gea sign a new deal with United, Chelsea goalie Thiabut Courtois could become Real Madrid’s top target instead.
The former Atletico Madrid man has 18-months remaining on his current deal and a clause in his contract with an option to extend by a further year.
