United Still Struggling To Convince David De Gea

Manchester United are understood to still be struggling to convince Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea to commit his future to the club with a new contract.

The Mirror says De Gea is refusing to budge on his £350,000-a-week wage demands in a contract stand-off with Manchester United.

De Gea has told United chiefs that he is prepared to commit the peak years of his career to the club – but only if the price is right.

And that means giving him a pay-rise that will put him behind only £400,000-a-week Alexis Sanchez in the Old Trafford pay stakes.

United are reluctant to meet De Gea’s demands but remain confident that a compromise will be struck.

The club was forced to trigger a one-year extension clause in the Spain No.1’s contract in November to prevent him talking to foreign clubs in the New Year.
