Manchester United have rejected PSG’s latest bid for David de Gea as the Red Devils are unwilling to let him leave this summer.
The Spaniard has only one year left on his current contract and could walk away on a free next summer if we are unable to tie him on a new deal.
However, if the latest reports are to be trusted, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still considers the Spaniard to be a vital cog in his wheel and hopes that the 28-year-old will finally commit to a new deal, sooner rather than later.
Currently on a £240,000 per week contract, the Red Devils have offered the goalkeeper a new 5-year deal worth £350,000 per week with negotiations still going on between the two parties.
PSG, who let go of their first choice goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon this summer, are in a need of a first choice goalkeeper and they consider de Gea as an able replacement for the Italian.
The Parisians have reportedly made a bid for the 28-year-old which United have subsequently rejected as there are still hopes that David will pen a new deal at the club.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer was inquired about the de Gea situation in the last game week and here’s what he had said back then:
“No updates from me.
“The club and David are in dialogue. Hopefully they’ll agree. It’s out of my hands, but I’m sure we’ll do what we can.
“David’s done fantastic since he came.
“The club really showed how much they wanted him back in the day when Eric [Steele] and the gaffer found him.
“There was probably keepers there better at that time, but the belief the manager showed in him with the criticism he got paid dividends.
“He’s been player of the year I don’t know how many years, we’re grateful to have him.”
