EPL: Manchester United ready to make De Gea highest paid player

Ed Woodward is set to target a midfielder for Manchester United

Ed Woodward is set to target a midfielder for Manchester United

David de Gea could reportedly soon become the best-paid player in the Premier League as the Spain global prepares to sign a new long-term contract with Manchester United.

The Spaniard is out of contract next year at the club and has been non-committal about his future beyond then.

De Gea's initial deal saw his time end this summer though his one year extension clause is said to have been triggered.

Reports that De Gea is demanding £350,000 per week to stay, only to be rebuffed, have raised eyebrows at Old Trafford given United would be likely to accept a wage at around that mark in recognition of the goalkeeper's importance on the pitch.

Interestingly, the Dome Glass protectors do have holes, but for the front-facing camera (s) and not the fingerprint reader. Samsung Galaxy A 2019 series of smartphones will reportedly consist of Samsung Galaxy A10, Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50.

There were concerns over De Gea in the early stages of his Premier League career, but the Madrid-born stopper has since developed into one of the world's best in his position.

De Gea's current deal expires in 2020 and the club's executives are desperate to keep hold of the Spanish shot-stopper who has been United's best player for the last few seasons.

Edwin van der Sar and Paul Mitchell are in the running for that role, while interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is receiving growing praise for his job as interim boss.
