Manchester United have been relatively active in the transfer market so far, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer adding two new players to the squad, while also tying three key stars down to new contracts.
Amongst those who still has a winding down deal is David de Gea. Although that may not be the case for much longer…
According to the Mirror on Sunday in an exclusive, it is being claimed that Solskjaer is to get a boost as the 28-year-old goalkeeper is finally going to agree to a new five-year contract at Old Trafford.
Apparently, De Gea’s new deal is worth £350,000-a-week, which is a significant improvement on the £200,000-a-week that he currently earns.
I know he struggled towards the end of the 2018/19 campaign, but that doesn’t take away from his sheer brilliance over the last half-decade.
The shot-stopper has been the one consistent player within a struggling squad since Sir Alex Ferguson decided to retire, and it’d be criminal if he was the one to miss out on a big payday.
It just gives Solskajer one less problem to worry about going into a key Premier League season. It also means there is less pressure on Dean Henderson, with the 22-year-old now looking like he’ll head to Sheffield United for another twelve months…
