De Gea on verge of signing £100m contract at Man Utd that will make him world’s ninth best-paid player

The Spaniard regarded as the best keeper in the world is set to commit his long-term future to United earning a whopping £400,000-a-week over five years.

Manchester United are confident David De Gea will sign a new £100million contract.

The United keeper has 18 months to run on his current deal after the club triggered the 12-month extension on his contract before Christmas.

De Gea is set to pen a new five-year deal worth a whopping £400,000-a-week, making him the ninth best-paid player in the world.

The Metro claim, the 28-year-old is set to follow Anthony Martial, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in penning new deals at Old Trafford while interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in charge.

United feared De Gea, regarded as the best keeper in the world was unhappy during Jose Mourinho’s reign and was looking for a return to Spain.

But talks with the Spanish international's representatives were back on last month with Solskjaer in the hot seat as the keeper is now much happier with his lot in Manchester.
De Gea pushed for parity with £500,000-a-week Alexis Sanchez as recognition for his huge standing and importance at the club.

But the new bumper deal agreed with the Old Trafford money men will be a massive hike on the £210,000-a-week he currently earns.

The deal is a significant boost for United, who have made player contracts a priority since Mourinho was sacked in December.

Ander Herrera is a free agent in the summer, but the midfielder has made it clear he wants to extend his stay at the club alongside Ashley Young who is close to signing a new deal.

Solskjaer will be looking for his eighth league win as United boss on Saturday at Craven Cottage against Fulham.
