David de Gea new Man Utd contract to trigger second deal

United look to have finally come to an agreement with De Gea over a new contract.

It follows talks that have gone on for over a year and left both parties in the wilderness.

At one stage, it looked likely that De Gea could leave the Red Devils and it could have been as early as this summer after a brick wall had been ran into.

Matters became so bad at Old Trafford that United triggered the extension clause in the goalkeeper’s contract keeping him from leaving this year for nothing.

Paris St-Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid had started to put the feelers out but United have now agreed a bumper new deal for the Spaniard.

De Gea will sign a £375,000-a-week contract over six years, worth a total of £117m.

It will keep him at the club until he is 34 and makes him the world’s best-paid keeper.

And the Daily Mail reports that it will trigger a second deal at the Red Devils for Dean Henderson.

The youngster is highly-regarded at the club and spent last season on loan to Sheffield United.

After asserting himself as No.1 at Brammall Lane he helped the Blades reach the Premier League for the first time since 2007.

And Henderson will sign a new contract at Old Trafford before being sent out on loan to Chris Wilder’s side for a second season.

The 22-year-old is keen to continue his development where at United he knows he would not get a chance ahead of De Gea.

The England Under-21 international has spent a large portion of his career dotted around the country, with spells at Stockport, Grimsby and Shrewsbury.

The young stopper has been left in England while his future is resolved, while his United team-mates jetted off for Australia last week.
