5. David de Gea rejects Man Utd contract extension offer

Goalkeeper David de Gea has reportedly rejected Manchester United’s first offer of a contract extension. The Spaniard’s current contract at Manchester United is set to expire in June 2023. According to reports, De Gea has turned down the first extension offer put on the table by Manchester United but will continue to negotiate in the hope of reaching a positive conclusion.

The shot-stopper is currently the world’s highest-paid keeper drawing a weekly salary of more than £375,000 but is well aware that at 32, he cannot continue to ask for a renewal with the same numbers and must settle for a lower pay package. The report mentions the club has made a “good proposal” to De Gea but the player is not convinced by the offer and feels that his remuneration does not do justice to his performances on the pitch.
