Manchester United are set to hold fresh contract talks with David de Gea as they look to pin down the goalkeeper to a new contract before the end of the season.

The 28-year-old is under contract until 2020 and could leave on a free at the end of next season if the club cannot sort out a new deal.

The Sun report that De Gea is happy to stay at Old Trafford, but that he is hoping for a substantial increase on his current £200,000-a-week wages.

The goalkeeper is holding out for a huge pay rise to £350,000-a-week and has reportedly told friends that a new deal is getting close.

De Gea has been linked with a move to both Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain and United were reportedly tempted to cash in on him for big money this summer.

With the Italian and French clubs circling around the stopper, the Red Devils were considering accepting offers of around £75m for the keeper.

However, it looks like they have now shelved plans to let him leave as they look to thrash out a new contract for the Spain international.

De Gea has made over 350 appearances for United since signing from Atletico Madrid in 2011, winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League in the process.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said of the situation earlier this month: ‘The club and David are in dialogue, hopefully, they’ll agree, it’s out of my hands but I’m sure we’ll do what we can.’
