Solskjaer sends message to David de Gea with latest contact update

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed talks over David De Gea’s new £350,000-a-week contract are still ongoing.

The interim boss said: “No updates from me, the club and David are in dialogue, hopefully, they’ll agree, it’s out of my hands but I’m sure we’ll do what we can. David’s done fantastic since he came, the club really showed how much they wanted him back in the day when Eric and the gaffer found him.

“There was probably keepers there better at that time, but the belief the manager showed in him with the criticism he got paid dividends. He’s been the player of the year for I don’t know how many years, we’re grateful to have him.

“Then again we’ve got Sergio [Romero] and Lee [Grant], fantastic goalkeeper depth, I don’t think there’s any manager in the world who’ll beat me in that respect.”

United are reportedly willing to make him the best-paid star in the Premier League with a £90 million five-year deal.
