According to the British media, the 32-year-old goalkeeper David De Gea could be close to reaching a resolution in his negotiations with Manchester United about the renewal of his contract at the club. United officials have expressed they are interested in keeping him at Old Trafford, but only if he agrees to take a huge pay cut.

The Spanish keeper rejected a lucrative offer to arrive to the Saudi Championship in early June, as being at the end of his contract with the Red Devils the player had received external offers while he hadn’t accept the club’s proposal to continue in the club; due to the uncertain role he would have in the team, not being guaranteed his presence in the starting eleven as the main goalkeeper.

According to The Mirror, Erik ten Hag's refusal to invest a large part of the money he will have this summer to incorporate a new goalkeeper would once again open the door to David De Gea's renewal. Goalkeepers like the Portuguese Diogo Costa or the Cameroonian Andre Onana have been placed as priority objectives for the Old Trafford team, but incorporating the Porto or Inter Milan player would require to the club a large investment, and Erik Ten Hag wouldn't want to spend a large part of the approximately €150 million of budget set by the Manchester United’s owners to invest in this summer transfer window.

The Manchester United goalkeeper is close to make his decision

Following The Mirror sources, Manchester United would have reconsidered then releasing David De Gea and would have offered a renewal to the Spanish goalkeeper again, although offering him a salary below what he previously received, decreasing it drastically from his current £375,000-a-week salary, and waiting for player to express if he accepts the new proposal to stay at the club.
