Cape Town - Manchester United are reportedly growing increasingly confident that goalkeeper, David De Gea, will stay beyond the summer.

The Independent report that Manchester United have renewed hopes that David De Gea will stay at Old Trafford.

De Gea signed from Atletico Madrid four years ago and is out of contract at the end of next season.

With Real Madrid's long-serving goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, expected to depart the reigning Champions League winners at the same time, speculation has linked Los Blancos with a move for De Gea - the timing of such a move has been the subject of much debate in recent months.

Manchester United have now reportedly offered the 24-year-old Spaniard a new contract worth £200 000-a-week to stay at Manchester United - with the prospect ever increasing that the talented shot-stopper could leave the club on a free next season to replace Casillas in goals for Madrid.

De Gea was named in the PFA Team of the Year after a brilliant season with the Red Devils.

Should De Gea decide to leave England for Spain, at the end of the current season or next, Chelsea's experienced goalkeeper Petr Cech and Tottenham Hotspur's French international, Hugo Lloris, are the front-runners to fill De Gea's gloves at the Theatre of Dreams.
