- David De Gea is set to face difficulty in sealing new contract deal with Man United
- The Spanish international's contract is set to expire at the end of the current season
- De Gea has been the most consistent player at Old Trafford since joining the club in 2011
David De Gea's quest of becoming Manchester United's highest paid player has taken another twist as the club may not be ready to grant him his wish.
The Spanish shot-stopper's contract will end next summer and the Red Devils wants the issue solved before the new season begins.
According to the Evening Standard, United are refusing to hand the 28-year-old his demands to become the club's top earner.
The Old Trafford outfit are only willing to offer the Spaniard £350,000 which is lower than Alexis Sanchez's £505,000 per week, but the wages will make him the highest paid goalie in the world.
De Gea has been the most consistent player since joining the club in 2011 and he has won Man United player of the season, four times in the last five years.

He has featured in all 30 matches in the Premier League but has conceded more goals, saving less and making more errors this season.
De Gea's clean sheet percentage, minutes per goal conceded, save percentage and minutes per error leading to goal have all taken a hit compared to his overall averages.
Remarkably, in 267 Premier League appearances, he has made just eight errors leading to goals but two of those have been this season - including Granit Xhaka's swerving last weekend shot at the Emirates.
