However, according to widespread reports United are again closing in on an agreement with the 'keeper.

Cape Town - Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly given goalkeeper David de Gea his full backing after a worrying dip in form.

De Gea's new deal would rule out the possibility of the goalkeeper leaving Manchester United for nothing next summer.

The same article states that the Spain worldwide is set to pocket £290,000 a week in his new Red Devils deal.

According to the Guardian, the Spanish global is finally on the verge of agreeing a new contract with the Mancunian giants.

In your opinion, should United agree a new deal with De Gea?

There had been further speculations that Manchester United were already preparing for life without their star goalkeeper. So, in my view, he should be offloaded and replaced in the winter transfer window.

There are growing concerns his continued contract stand-off with United could also be having an impact on his performances, with fears the Spaniard is ready to run down the rest of his deal and quit Old Trafford next summer on a free transfer.

As per the terms of the new deal, the shot-stopper will earn a basic salary of £290,000-a-week - the same as Paul Pogba, who is now the top earner in the squad following Alexis Sanchez's loan departure to Inter.

The Spain global is in the final year of his current deal at Old Trafford where he has played since joining United from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

The Red Devils have made a slow start to the new Premier League season. And the report of him nearing a contract extension will come as music to the ears of the Manchester United supporters.
