Manchester United face more uncertainty over the future of goalkeeper David De Gea after it was revealed he’s still yet to sign a new contract at Old Trafford.

There had been reports a huge £350,000 per week deal had been penned in recent weeks but the Sunday Mirror suggest this isn’t the case.

It’s added negotiations have failed with their shot-stopper and the Red Devils don’t know if the contract will be finalised and signed.

If De Gea, 28, does not put pen to paper then he will be free to speak with foreign clubs from January as his current deal ends next summer.

Should the Spaniard choose to wait things out and leave on a free transfer he would likely command a huge signing-on fee where ever ends up.

He told the club’s official website: “David’s had a summer now where he’s been negotiating and thinking about his contract, so we hope that we’re going to get it sorted soon.”

Real Madrid have shown an interest in the player previously and almost landed him in 2015 only to see the transfer breakdown at the last minute.
