David de Gea’s Man United future ‘uncertain’ as he seeks assurances over club ambitions and wage parity
- David de Gea has one-year left on his current Manchester United contract
- The Red Devils are keen to extend the Spain international’s stay at Old Trafford
- However, the 28-year-old is holding off until his questions are answered by them
David de Gea’s future at Manchester United remains up in the air as he wishes to know the club’s ambitions before committing to a new deal.
According to Sky Sports News, the goalkeeper is still holding off signing a new contract until he is given assurances over certain criteria.
The first thing is that he wants to know that the club can still compete for major honours. Since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013, United have only won the FA Cup, Europa League and League Cup in the six subsequent seasons.

Secondly, De Gea is keen for the disparity in wages between him and the other top earners at the club to be closed – with Alexis Sanchez’s 500,000-a-week deal (inclusive of bonuses) leading the way.
De Gea was an ever-present in the Premier League this season – playing all 38 games as United finished a disappointing sixth.
The Spaniard was guilty of some high-profile errors towards the end of the season, but the Red Devils would like to keep the goalkeeper.
The 28-year-old has one year left on his current deal and can sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from January.
