Anything less than parity with our top earner is an insult star man in 4 of last 5 seasons only been here from 7 years and he’s the one player we have who would walk into any team in the world.

Assuming there’s any truth in the story Utd really shouldn’t be messing about and penny pinching on his deal.

Giving Sanchez the reported mega deal we have £300k a week plus a £75k appearance bonus according to some means the current top boys will want the same when it comes to discussing their deals.

I mean... If the club mess this one up then they should sack everyone involved in contract dealings and transfer dealings.

They might not want to give out huge money but they should have thought about that before giving stupid money to players who weren't worthy.

DDG deserves to be the top paid player at the club. He's the best player, he's the best GK in the world and he's been our top performer for years.

Do they think because Real are out of the running that they can get away with giving him less? To be honest it's a disgrace.

He’s the most important player at the club and the main reason we’ve even been in the fight for top 4 the last few seasons

It’s just tactics leaking things in the press.

Came from castles wouldn’t surprise me if it’s Mourinho letting it slip to throw some shade back at Woodward as he’s not sorting contracts out properly.

De Gea should have signed a new contract BEFORE Real signed a new keeper. That was his bargaining position which he has now lost, bad by his agent. He should still be getting parity with our top earner tho.

If united are using the Courtois deal to play games with De Gea then shame on them.

I don't think anything is going on. My guess is Utd haven't actually started negotiations as he's tied down for 2 years you'd hope that over the next 12 months they'll sort this one out because it won't be long before clubs like Juventus or PSG start sniffing around him because they can offer him the trophies Utd can't.

De Gea's agent is Jorge Mendes the story above came from Duncan Castles who everyone knows has links to Mendes to me a story like that is an agent trying to hurry a club up in terms of negotiations.

Transfer window is shut now might be a few deals to get some players out before European window shuts but really next few months has to focus on sorting out existing player contracts then Jan to June can be spent planning for next summer

I think he loves the fans too much, because of how they treated him. I really get the impression he wats to win stuff with the club

I think he does want to win at Utd but he's not an idiot he must look at the squad and think this lot aren't getting near the league or CL any time soon and it's a question of how long is he prepared to wait and how much does he believe that we'll be back.

5 probably about to be 6 years with no league title is a long time for this club and right now it doesn't look like we are heading forward at best we are standing still possibly even going backwards.

He's 27 so 5 year deal takes him to 32 and he looks to me like a keeper who's going to drop off into his 30's as his reflexes decline like Casillas, so the next 5 years are his peak years. I'm 50/50 on him staying or going think he'll see how this season goes and who might be interested in him if the offers are no good he'll stay but if a club who can offer him trophies could tempt him and with 1 year on his deal he might ask to go. If he does you're looking at £40m coming in then having to spend £80m on a replacement like Chelsea had to do.

I don't thik the squad is that far off you know, I know people on here shoot me down for this, but I think a top drawer CB and we would compete. It would move us up the pitch another 10-15 yards.

I think to win a league we need 4 players unless Dalot turns out to be a world class player.

Right now we need a top class RB, 2 CB's (don't really rate any of our 5 currently) and a RW that's just the starting XI the squad needs much more of an overhual if it was down to me I'd be chaning the entire defence apart form Dalot & Shaw.

Think there's even questions over Lukaku being a good enough number 9 to fire you to the title he's 25-30 a season not 35-40 so others really need to step up and support him as the numbers from the other attackers aren't good enough.

Jesus we said all that at the start of the summer and look where we still are
It’s kind of relevant to this discussion though because we are trying to get our star player to sign a new deal and the question is will he if he doesn’t think the team can win the major titles?

This thread shouldn't even have been started. The board are idiots. They know nothing about football and not a lot about people. We are lucky that he's stayed with us as long as he has.

It's in the clubs interest to negotiate you don't go straight in with your top offer and really the jackpot for them this summer was Courtois going to Madrid as that removed that destination for him.

Happy to see De Gea stay if he signs a new deal would like to have seen Shaw sweat a bit more before he got his new deal but can't really blame the club for acting quickly.
