José Mourinho may deserve laud and accolades after guiding the Red Devils to a second spot finish at the end of last term.
But nonetheless, United wouldn’t have gotten that far without their star signings. It’s no longer any news that the likes of Pogba, De Gea and a few others have helped United to one of the best position since falling short after Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013.
A few of them have been linked with a move outside the club to top flight teams across Europe particularly De Gea.
The Spaniard was rumoured to be eyed by Real Madrid, an interest that has lingered for so long. It is believed Real Madrid are willing to replace him with the aging Keylor Navas whose form has since a gradual decline.
However, Manchester United have reportedly agreed terms with £100 million(€114m) rated star.
According to the Sun, the club is willing to pay the Spaniard £350,000-per-week, upped from £200,000-a-week as wages in a new five year deal. And Manchester Evening News confirmed that De Gea has agreed to the deal.
Arguably, he is still the best shot-stopper in the world despite his a flimsy goalkeeping in Spain’s opening World Cup clash against Portugal yesterday in Sochi, Russia.
This new development will indeed be good music to the ears of United fans who are assured this will drive away suitors Real Madrid and keep their best man.
