Manchester United fans on Twitter have been busy arguing over what to do with David de Gea, after it was reported that the goalkeeper is looking to double his current wages of £240,000-a-week if he is to sign a new contract, per Daily Telegraph.
The demands appear to be a knock-on effect from Alexis Sanchez’s reported astronomical earnings of £500,000-a-week, as there is seemingly no other reason why the Spanish international would demand such a massive sum of £480,000-a-week – he is definitely one of the most important players in the team, but that figure is just downright ridiculous.

Obviously, the Red Devils would rather not lose the former Atletico Madrid stopper, although a few fans would rather not see the club bow down to his demands.
Having said that, some are keen for the club to just pay him what he’s after, citing the fact that De Gea is one of Europe’s best as a reason to splash out on securing his future.
Let’s see what the clearly divided United fanbase on Twitter have been saying about the situation…
If you’re the best you get paid like the best. He stuck by United when they went through an awful few years and he deserves to be rewarded for it.

Well, @ManUtd gave that to an ineffective Sanchez. Don’t see why same can’t be done for the GOAT of goalkeepers.

Get rid of him and every other contract rebel. Then get rid of Sanchez. If we improve our defense we won’t need a WC goalie as much. If we give in then get strapped in for the drama we are going to endure trying to renew Pogba’s contract.
