Premier League giants Manchester United have made a breakthrough in their bid to keep first-choice goalkeeper David De Gea at the club beyond his current contract.
This is according to the publication from the stables of The Times which revealed that a new four-year deal has been agreed between the Spanish international shot-stopper and the club with the option of an additional year.
David De Gea will earn a basic weekly £250,000 for his new contract while the 25% wage deduction for failing to qualify for Champions League football has been waved for him thus making him the highest earner at Manchester United ahead of star player Paul Pogba.

French international Pogba will not likely find the new development concerning David De Gea amusing since the 25% wage deduction was only waved for the Spaniard.
David De Gea was in very good form for Manchester United at the weekend after he kept Leicester City at bay during their Premier League meeting.
He kept a clean sheet as Manchester United beat Leicester City 1-0 courtesy the first half strike from Marcus Rashford.
England international Rashford scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu.
