Cape Town - Manchester United are reportedly set to enter into fresh negotiations with David de Gea's representatives over a new contract.

Spain international De Gea has been in sensational form for the Red Devils once again this season and his impressive performances have helped the club into the quarter-final stages of the Champions League.

The 28-year-old continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain keeping an eye on his current situation.

However, the club’s upturn in form and results since the arrival of interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to have persuaded the shot-stopper to stay and an extension is expected to be signed.

United, who are also in contention for a top-four finish this season, are set to reopen talks with De Gea’s representatives as they look to wrap up a new deal before the end of the current campaign.

It is claimed the Spaniard is looking for a bumper pay rise that will see his wages increase from £200 000-per-week to £350 000.
