Man Utd goalkeeper David de Gea has reportedly indicated that he is prepared to remain at Old Trafford by signing new long-term contract.

The 28-year-old Spaniard has been involved in a contract standoff with Manchester United for a number of months, forcing the team to trigger a one-year contract extension automatically.

De Gea is therefore tied down until the end of next campaign. However, the Red Devils may have to cash in later this year if they don’t want to risk losing him for free in the nearby future.

However, The Sun claimed that the Spanish stopper has informed his close friends that he is eager to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

An offer of £350,000 a week will be enough to end the transfer saga, it is reported that it is substantially less than the Red Devils are paying for Alexis Sanchez who has failed to establish himself at Old Trafford since the arrival from Arsenal.

Spaniard was at fault for the Gunners opening goal in Sunday’s 2-0 defeat at the Emirates Stadium.

Meanwhile, Manchester United attacking midfielder Juan Mata is reportedly on the brink of signing a new long-term contract with 20-time English champions.

The Spanish midfielder has been with the Red Devils since January 2014, founding back of the net 44 times and providing 36 assists in 213 games for the Red Devils.

The 30-year-old’s current deal will expire this summer, but, and it had been reported that the Spanish playmaker would depart from the club on a free transfer after the end of the current campaign.
