In the process of searching for a new goalkeeper, after De Gea expressed his intention not to renew, MU wants to accelerate negotiations with AC Milan about Mike Maignan.
Goalkeeper David de Gea has been the number 1 pillar of MU in recent years. He is currently the highest earner at Old Trafford with a salary of £ 375,000 a week. De Gea’s contract with MU is only valid until the end of this season.
The Old Trafford team is willing to renew the player born in 1990, but they want him to have to reduce his salary. MU wants De Gea to reduce his salary to £ 200,000 / week. The Red Devils are hoping to strike a deal by increasing De Gea’s bonus.
However, the 32-year-old is not willing to accept a pay cut, he is ready to leave Old Trafford after 12 years. In the process of searching for a new goalkeeper, after De Gea expressed his intention not to renew, MU wants to accelerate negotiations with AC Milan about Mike Maignan.
AC Milan recruited Maignan from Lille in the summer of 2021, replacing Gigio Donnarumma. The French goalkeeper quickly integrated and played impressively. He was the hero who helped Milan win Serie A last season. This season, Maignan continues to have class performances to bring the Rossoneri into the semi-finals of the Champions League.
MU wants to accelerate the transfer agreement, they accept to spend 60 million pounds for this deal. In addition to MU, Arsenal and Tottenham also sent officials to Milan to contact Maignan. The Italian side do not want to sell one of the most important players in the squad, but the English teams are maintaining very high determination.
