Report - Manchester United offer De Gea huge record breaking contract

David de Gea for Spain U21

Manchester United are willing to break the bank in order to keep their goalkeeper at Old Trafford.

David De Gea's contract extension must be on top of Manchester United's to-do list from now until the start of next season.

The Spanish international's stock has risen in recent years, and he has arguably been the Premier League's best goalkeeper this season.

The Daily Star are reporting that United have come to the Spaniard and his agent with a new contract worth a staggering £200,000 a week, a pressing issue given as his contract will expire next summer.

If De Gea was to sign up at Old Trafford he would be the Premier League's best paid goalkeeper of all time, and up with Manuel Neuer as one of the highest paid stoppers in the world according to the Star.

The former Atletico Madrid number one has been ever present for Louis van Gaal's side this season, and has put in a series of superb performances to help United back into the Champions League places, after missing out on the competition this year.

It has meant big spending Real Madrid have been credited with an ever-growing interest in a player many think is the long-term replacement for Iker Casillas for the Spanish national team.

United will be hoping that their bumper new offer will be enough for the 23-year-old to commit to staying in the Premier League, rather than replacing Casillas at club level too.
