The Manchester Evening News says the deal is worth almost $138 million over six years, with Manchester United fending off interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

His new deal will run until 2025, earning the Spain goalkeeper more than £110million over six years.

Confidence over De Gea's new deal should mean that Dean Henderson is allowed to return to Sheffield United on loan.

His new contract will keep him at the club until he is 34 and he will be eligible for a testimonial in two years after moving to Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

Bielsa's side will complete their pre-season preparations with a trip to Italian Serie A club Cagliari on Saturday, 27 July. We do not understand and can't decide who will win in this battle Western Sydney Wanderers FC v Leeds United .

The 28-year-old, who would have been a free agent next summer, thought long and hard about his future with Paris Saint-Germain interested.

The fresh terms make De Gea the highest-paid keeper in the world.

United kept goalkeeping coach Emilio Alvarez on staff after parting ways with Jose Mourinho, and the report claims that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's support for De Gea previous year during a downturn in form meant a lot to the backstop.

De Gea did not have the best of times last season as United finished 6th in the Premier League with a healthy 32 points gap between the Red Devils and champions Manchester City.
