United gave De Gea an ultimatum
Manchester United gave their goalkeeper David De Gea one week to make the final decision about a new contract.
As you know, De Gea’s current contract expires in one year. The club has been trying to persuade its first-choice keeper to a new deal for several months, but without success. At Old Trafford, they feel that they can no longer pull this off.
Now, the Red Devils want to get a response from the 28-year-old Spaniard till the end of the season, The Sun reports. If De Gea doesn’t accept the proposal for a new contract with a 350 thousand pounds per week salary, he will be put up for sale.
PSG, Juventus and Real Madrid are called among the main contenders for David. According to rumors, De Gea’s doubts about the contract extension with United aren’t so much caused by the financial side as with the sports side – the goalkeeper fears that he won’t be able to fight for the highest awards if he remains at Old Trafford.
