Man Utd Key Player Demand Huge Pay Rise to Sign New Deal

September 12, 2018

Spain no.1 David De Gea is seeking a massive pay rise at Manchester United as a reward for his loyalty in the transfer market.

The Red Devils offered the first-choice keeper a new contract three months ago, knowing Real Madrid could have come calling this summer transfer window and while fresh terms with the Old Trafford outfit were not agreed, nor did the Spaniard force the issue on the move to La Liga.

His current contract expires next summer and Premier League giants are desperate to avoid losing key man on a free transfer in 2019.

Talks over a contract are ongoing, and the 27-year-old has supposedly demanded an eye-watering £350,000-a-week salary.

The proposal, which would run until 2023, would see David De Gea extend his stay at 20 times English champions to over a decade.

The Sun claims that the Spain international wants pay parity with the biggest earners at the club – namely Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba.

If Manchester United agree to the demands of David De Gea, he would be in line to earn £72.8m over the duration of the contract.
