De Gea, who has yet to commit to United with one year left on his current contract, has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, where he would follow Spanish companion Ander Herrera to Ligue 1.
After Alexis Sánchez’s arrival in January 2018, the Chilean’s weekly-wage, believed to be £350,000-a-week (not including bonuses), affected contract negotiations with the rest of the squad with those who had been loyal at United wanting offers closer to Sánchez’. Herrera was reportedly one casualty of this and his move to France occurred from the club not giving in to his wage demands.
De Gea has also been holding out for a wage that resembles his contribution to the club and the latest offer stands at £240,000-a-week, with bonuses that could see his wage rise to £350,000, according to a Telegraph report.
United striker Marcus Rashford was the latest to commit to the club, signing a four-year contract with the option to extend for a further year. Rashford’s deal also sees him surpass £300,000-a-week should he claim performance-related bonuses, with the basic wage reportedly £200,000-a–week. Fans will now be hoping De Gea is next to pen a new deal in Manchester, with the goalkeeper spot being a position United can’t really afford to spend time filing this summer.
