David de Gea is reportedly willing to take a pay cut to extend his contract at Manchester United.
The 31-year-old goalkeeper has been with the Red Devils since 2011 and has made over 500 appearances for the club across all competitions.
However, De Gea’s long-term future at Old Trafford is believed to be uncertain as his current contract is due to expire next summer.
Man United are believed to have the option to extend De Gea’s current deal by a further 12 months, but a recent report claims that they will only trigger this extension if they fail to sign a suitable replacement.
Porto’s Diogo Costa and Athletic Bilbao’s Unai Simon are among several goalkeepers linked with a potential switch to Old Trafford.
De Gea is willing to reduce his £375,000-per-week salary to extend his contract at Man United.
De Gea is settled in Manchester, but it remains to be seen whether Erik Ten Hag views the Spanish stopper as his long-term number one going forward.
Ten Hag has suggested that talks over a new contract for De Gea could take place during the World Cup, with the 45-cap Spain international allegedly set to miss out on Luis Enrique’s 26-man squad.
Earlier this week, Ten Hag said: “This issue about negotiating [contracts], we said; first we are focusing on the games. When we come to the end of this block, we have the World Cup, and then we have to think about them.
