Man United ready to break record to keep star

Manchester United are ready to make David de Gea the highest paid goalkeeper on the planet with a £200,000-per-week contract, but that may not be enough to ensure his stay with his advisors pushing for a release clause, according to The Mirror.

The Spaniard has been, arguably, the Red Devils’ top performer this season, with his showings between the sticks having been key in the club’s revival from a poor start to the campaign.

His performances have attracted Real Madrid, who are thought to be monitoring the situation as De Gea heads towards the final year of his current deal.

United are, naturally, eager to keep their man, and are willing to smash records by offering him a staggering £200k-per-week deal.

However, the glovesman’s representatives are adamant that a buy-out clause should be inserted into any deal before he thinks about signing.

The club are reluctant to meet such demands, though, with Real known to have serious financial clout when it comes to transfers.
