De Gea Provides New Update On Contract Talks Amid Rumours Linking United With £35M Replacement

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea says he won’t discuss his contract situation during the middle of the season.

The Spaniard’s current deal expires at the end of June but, speaking ahead of the game against Sevilla on Thursday evening, the 32-year-old said he was concentrating on playing his football:

“It is time just to be focused as we play many games in a row. It is not time to lose focus and think about contracts. My aim is to keep going and play my best.”

De Gea is believed to have rejected United’s first proposal to extend his contract, with the club keen on cutting his £375,000 a week salary, but there is confidence that a compromise can be reached.

Even so, the Red Devils have been linked with potential replacements. Porto’s Diogo Costa and Borussia Dortmund’s Gregor Kobel have been mentioned as targets, but Brentford’s David Raya is the keeper many believe they will make a move for.

The 27-year-old is set to leave the Bees this summer, with the likes of Chelsea and Tottenham also reportedly interested in the shot-stopper, with his price tag believed to be £35m. United are seemingly still keen to keep De Gea but, if negotiations do drag on, they may look to recruit Raya instead.
