This summer, as has been the case in previous years, we’ve discussed the possibility of David de Gea possibly leaving Manchester United.
It is a scenario we’ve covered in-depth with our latest offering manchester-united-could-be-going-about-this-the-wrong-way, being an apt illustration.
However, it seems to be that this annual debate will not feature on our pages for the foreseeable future with it being confirmed by many news sources, including The Telegraph, that the Spaniard has opted to remain at Old Trafford for the next six-years.
His decision though, it’s fair to say, may have had something to do with a contract being offered that will see him paid a whopping £375,000 a week or a cool £117 million in total.
It’s a staggering amount of money but, seemingly, a sum Manchester United felt they had to offer to enable them to keep the services of the keeper who will put pen-to-paper on the deal when Manchester United return from their current Asian tour.
Let’s hope the stability of this new long-term deal will see those errors that crept into De Gea’s game last season eliminated!
