David de Gea responds to ‘noise’ surrounding Manchester United contract negotiations

The Spaniard’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the season, after United opted not to trigger a 12-month extension option due to De Gea’s wish for a pay cut.

He is currently making £375,000 a week, having signed a huge deal in September 2019 when he was also in the final year of his contract at Old Trafford.

It was reported earlier this week by The Athletic that De Gea had rejected United’s opening bid to keep him at the club beyond the summer, although a deal is believed to be agreed between the two parts.

De Gea has now been at United for almost 12 years and, before Erik ten Hag’s side made the trip to face Newcastle this weekend in their first match after the international break, insisted that He was always happy at the club but wanted to keep his focus on matters on the pitch.

“Of course I’ve been here for many, many years,” De Gea told Sky Sports. “Enjoying every moment at this club and playing many games.

“It’s a huge club, I love the club and I’m really happy here of course. It’s been the same for years, a lot of noise about everything at this club but the players, we only focus on matches.

“Especially the one we have on Sunday is huge for us because we want to finish in the top four.

“As I say, we have many, many games. We have to train, recover well, help the team and that’s the most important thing, more than contracts or anything.
