David de Gea showed yesterday against Chelsea, why is widely regarded as the best in the business, however, his contract situation is a serious concern for United.

According to The Mirror, his situation is concerning the powers that be at Manchester United.

David De Gea’s Manchester United future is still in doubt. There has been talk of a new contract being agreed during the summer.

A whopping 350,000 pounds a week. Making de Gea the highest-paid keeper in the world. It makes sense to pay the best in the world, the best salary.

The Spaniard knows he can go anywhere in the world. His dream move to Real Madrid almost happened back on Lois Van Gaal’s watch. But for a faulty fax machine, he would have been sold.

While an extension was signed, that deal is about out too.

The problem right now is that nothing is signed. The contract is waiting for his signature.

De Gea is 28-years-old and entering his prime. He had an exceptional first game of the season against Chelsea. Which has only gone further to prove his worth.

If United don’t get his signature on a new contract soon, they run the risk of him talking to foreign clubs in January and signing a pre-contract agreement to move on a free at the end of the season.

If United are going to cash in, they need to move quickly. The Spanish, French and Italian transfer windows close September 2nd.

Real Madrid or Parsi Saint Germain would be the obvious choices for the Spanish number 1. The longer the Red Devils let this situation go on, the lower the price will go.

The record fee for a goalkeeper right now stands at 70 million. If de Gea is at his best, his price would be far beyond that. The longer he delays signing the closer that value gets to zero for United.
