David de Gea wants to commit his long-term future to Manchester United but is awaiting a suitable offer as contract talks continue.
De Gea will command a significant improvement on his current £200,000-a-week contract and would expect his wages to top £300,000 including bonuses.
Discussions between the 28-year-old’s representatives and United have been ongoing for some time but without resolution.
United activated a 12-month extension in November, locking the Spaniard in until 2020 and preventing him talking to interested clubs this month ahead of a potential free transfer.
Several players ran straight over to De Gea after the final whistle on Sunday and are desperate for him to remain their No 1 for years to come.
‘We want him to stay,’ midfielder Jesse Lingard said. ‘He’s one of the best keepers in the world, if not the best.’
