Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is set to hand his side Manchester United a major boost ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
According to report from The Sun, the tabloid claim the Spaniard is on the verge of agreeing a new long-term deal after months of talks between his camp and club.
The Red Devils recently made the decision to extend his current deal by another year to 2020.
De Gea, 28, is claimed to have told close pals he is on the verge of signing a new contract which will tie him to the club well into his 30s and the new deal is understood to be worth around £400,000-a-week, including bonuses.
He has kept 95 clean sheets in 253 Premier League appearances and has won United’s player of the year award in four of the last five seasons.
Jose Mourinho recently praised the shot-stopper and expressed his confidence he would commit his long-term future to the club.
The United manager said:
“He is a world-class player.
“He is the best goalkeeper in the world and, if our ambitions are to be a big club, to be a winning club, you need the best goalkeeper in the world – and you need also some other players the best in the world.
“In this case, we have the best goalkeeper in the world and I know that he wants to stay.
“I know that his agent is happy to do what the player wants and I also know that the board wants him to stay and they’re working on that, so hopefully sooner or later they arrive into good conclusions.”
