The rumours surrounding David De Gea and move back to Spain are about to be put to rest - for good. A faulty tax machine prevented the Spaniard from joining Real Madrid a few years ago and despite the fact United won't be playing in the Champions League next season, De Gea isn't going anywhere.

According to 'The Telegraph', De Gea will pen a new six-year deal with the Red Devils. Not only that but he'll become the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world. The 28-year-old will earn £130m in total, working out at around €21m per season.

The money on offer played a huge part in convincing De Gea to stay, as did Ole Gunnar Solskjær's support when he was going through his toughest spell at the club. He'll now be the second-highest earner at the club behind Alexis Sanchez. The contract is to be signed once United return from their Asia Tour.
