SPAIN’S number one goalkeeper David De Gea keeps Manchester United in the dark over his future at the club as he delays signing a new contract with the struggling Premier League side.
United have already extended the current contract of their first-choice keeper until at least 2020, and have thrown a new £275,000-a-week salary on the table to entice De Gea to stay.
Red Devils chairman Ed Woodward is in talks with De Gea’s agent Jorge Mendes and United manager Jose Mourinho.
The Spanish shot-stopper, who was pummelled by Raheem Sterling and England in Sevilla in the Nations League on Monday, is thought to be the world’s highest paid keeper already, on £200,000 a week.
United’s latest offer would increase the Spanish goalie’s wage dramatically, but with the uncertain future of Manchester United and calls for Mourinho to be go, De Gea and the rest of the team will be considering their futures carefully.
De Gea will have the task of stopping the attacking threat of an in-form Chelsea side at Stamford Bridge tomorrow, as Mourinho looks to end his woes by seeing his United team get their first goal at the Bridge with him at the helm.
