David de Gea is close to finally agreeing a new contract with Manchester United. The goalkeeper is on the verge of completing the details on terms in the region of the £290,000-a-week basic earned by Paul Pogba and the Spaniard expects to sign soon, it is understood.

De Gea is out of contract next summer so a new deal would allow United to protect an asset whose market price would rise to at least £80m.
