David De Gea is on the verge of agreeing on a new contract at Manchester United.
The Spaniard who was signed from Atletico Madrid back in 2011 for $23m, has been a regular fixture in the Manchester United starting 11 for over a decade a year and it is believed that his loyalty is set to be rewarded with a new deal, according to Forbes writer Sam Pilger.

De Gea’s contract was set to run out on 30 June, adding to speculation that Erik Ten Hag was looking elsewhere as he attempts to implement his philosophy on the side after his first season at the club.
It was thought that De Gea’s lack of distribution ability, as shown by his howler in last night’s 3-0 defeat at Sevilla in United’s Europa League Quarter Final exit, would cause Ten Hag to let the goalkeeper leave in the summer.
However, with 14 Premier League clean sheets, De Gea’s shot-stopping has never been in question and it is likely the Manchester United manager will look at other positions to strengthen the team.
