The player is poised to sign a new 5 year deal
Manchester United signed Goalkeeper David De Gea from Atletico Madrid in 2011 to replace Edwin Van Der Sar, who retired form active football that year only. Sir Alex Ferguson even missed a League Cup match to travel to Spain to watch him in action before deciding to sign him up.
The 27 year old had a rocky start in England and was criticized for some of his displays but since then he has established himself as a key player for the club. He has been the best player for the Red Devils for the last few seasons, winning a record-breaking four Player of the Year awards with the club.
The Spaniard was one of the standout players for the English side last season, keeping 18 clean sheets in the league and was presented his first ever Premier League Golden Glove award.
He has been a model of consistency in recent years, with his shot-stopping ability having helped the club to many precious points during a testing period on and off the field. He is arguably considered the best goalkeeper in the world right now.
The Spain International has been repeatedly linked with a move to Real Madrid in the past few transfer windows but a deal never went through. But he has been again linked with a move to them in the summer as they are looking to find a long term replacement for Keylor Navas.
The Premier League giants have always remained adamant they would not sell their prize asset and were confident he would not agitate to leave. It looks like that they will end the renewed talk of interest for their Goalkeeper.
Manchester United are prepared to make de Gea the best-paid goalkeeper in world football with an £18.4 million-a-year deal, reports Marca . He is poised to sign a new five-year deal at Old Trafford.
