Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is set to sign a new contract, 10 months after expressing his desire to end his career at Old Trafford. The negotiations have been prolonged due to De Gea's high salary of £375,000-a-week. United want him to take a pay cut, which has been the main sticking point in discussions.
De Gea is also attracting negative scrutiny, having made four errors leading directly to goals this season. However, he remains a key player for the club, having surpassed Alex Stepney's appearance record and Peter Schmeichel's clean sheet record.
