Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is reportedly asking for a pay rise in his contract as a reward for his loyalty during the transfer market.
The Spaniard was pressurized by Real Madrid for his signature but he maintains his standby staying with the Old Trafford outfits.
The goalie, who is rated as one of the best in his generation, was first targeted by the Los Blancos in 2013 but they couldn’t capture him.
The unrelenting Galacticos made another move for his signature in 2015, they were very close to getting his signature as they have reached an agreement with his agent, but the deal was blocked from materializing in the deadline day of the transfer window.
Having signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea this summer, the European Champions cooled their interest in the goaltender which means he will be staying under Mourinho’s tutelage for more seasons.
De Gea will see his contract expires by the end of the ongoing season and United have reportedly offered him a five-year contract but he’s yet to accept it.
According to Daily Star, De Gea wants to receive a whopping £350,000 per week but United are yet to respond to the player’s demand.
Should the Red Devils reach an agreement with the goalie over his contract extension, the Spaniard will receive nothing less than £72m by the end of the contract in 2023.
