PSG to sign David de Gea from Manchester United in the summer

Reports suggest that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea in the summer.

Paris Saint-Germain are “ready to meet David De Gea’s £350,000-a-week wage demands” in order to convince him to leave Manchester United, according to reports.

The goalkeeper’s contract expires in the summer, and his camp have reached an impasse with the club in their negotiations over a new deal.

United are willing to increase de Gea’s wages but not to the extent of making him the highest paid player at the club – which is what the 28-year-old wants.

Alexis Sanchez is currently the biggest earner at the club but has not been reflecting this on the pitch, having only scored two goals in all competitions so far this season.

The Chilean’s undeserved wages have unsettled the United dressing room, and now the likes of de Gea and Paul Pogba think that they deserve to be earning as much if not more than their underperforming teammate, given how well they have been playing this season.

According to The Independent, PSG have been monitoring the former’s contract situation at Old Trafford and are prepared to swoop in with a salary offer of £350,000-a-week in order to entice the Spain international to agree to a move.

The Ligue 1 leaders reportedly want to upgrade on the ageing Gianluigi Buffon and have made de Gea their top target for the summer transfer window.

However, The Independent reports that the Spaniard’s preference is to stay at Old Trafford following their impressive form under their new permanent manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Although the summer transfer window opens on May 17 for Premier League clubs, Ligue 1 sides with likely have to wait until June to make new signings.
