Manchester United are reportedly 'confident' of striking an agreement to keep David de Gea at the club, as talks have resumed over a five-year deal worth around £350,000 a week.
The Spanish keeper has been arguably United's most important player of the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era, winning four of the last six Player of the Year awards at Old Trafford. However, with just a year to run on his current contract, his future remains up in the air.
According to the Sun, an initial offer of £300,000 a week had been on the table since the turn of the year, but United will now up that by another £50,000 in an attempt to convince the star to stay.
The proposed deal will be a four-year contract with an option to trigger an extra year if United want, and will be a huge increase on his current deal worth £200,000 a week. This offer still falls short of Alexis Sanchez's package, which is reported to be close to £500,000 a week and a notorious sticking point for United when discussing contracts with other stars.
The club are set for a summer of drastic change after a deeply disappointing 2018/19. While Daniel James is United's only arrival so far, the likes of Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Bruno Fernandes have all been linked. In addition, players like Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba could be set for the exit.
De Gea has suffered a dip in form since last summer's World Cup making a number of high profile errors. As a result, potential suitors abroad like PSG and Real Madrid have cooled their interest, perhaps giving de Gea little option but to stay put for now.
The 28-year-old was close to a dream move back to the Spanish capital in 2015, but a deal fell through at the last minute after Real Madrid (infamously) had a problem with their fax machine.
De Gea has 362 appearances in eight years at United after joining from Atletico Madrid in 2011, and one league title to his name.
