It has recently been claimed that United could take the opportunity to take De Gea’s lucrative wages out of his departures, rather than commit to another year with the Spaniard at the club.

While it has been suggested De Gea taking a pay cut could see new terms penned before the end of the season, United remain linked with alternative options.
