La Liga giants Real Madrid are believed to be interested in the 24-year-old, but Daily Express reports that United have increased its offer by £50,000 to an incredible £200,000-a-week with manager Louis van Gaal desperate to keep his star gloveman at the club.
It is believed de Gea wanted to wait until United secured a Champions League spot, but the report suggests he is now willing to put pen-to-paper on a new deal.
De Gea has just a year remaining on his current deal at Old Trafford and holds the bargaining power over his club.
The former Atletico Madrid man could choose to run down his contract and leave the club as a free agent, which has resulted in United having to dig deep into its coffers to keep hold of the star custodian.
De Gea has overcome a shaky start to his Premier League career to become one of the world’s most sought-after goalkeepers and is now well on his way to becoming Spain’s no.1.
He joined United for £17.8m in 2011, a British record transfer fee for a goalkeeper.
