Manchester United want to make David de Gea one of their highest paid players in a bid to stop him joining Real Madrid this summer.
Spanish giants Real have made signing United keeper De Gea on of their biggest priorities this summer after failing to land the keeper over the past two years.
United are aware of the interest from Madrid and manager Jose Mourinho has spoken with his player to make sure he is still focused on performing this season.
And now, according to the MEN, they club are ready to make a final effort to keep the 26-year-old by handing him a lucrative new contract.
De Gea’s current deal still has another two seasons to run, and United do have the option of activating a further year to keep him at Old Trafford.
But they are reportedly prepared to dig deep and offer an increase on his £200,000-a-week wages in an effort to convince him to stay in the Premier League.
They also want to sell the vision of the future under Mourinho, with United planning to be major players in the transfer market over the close season.
Mourinho is hoping to make the changes to his squad he feels will deliver a group capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.
And should United win the Europa League this month, the United boss is also hoping to mount a serious challenge in the Champions League.
Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford, while James Rodriguez is another who United have been tracking.
Should De Gea decide his future lies in Spain, United have resolved internally to make sure Real pay big money to compensate the upheaval in the she squad.
The current world record fee paid for a keeper is the £32.6million Juventus splashed out to sign Gianluigi Buffon from Parma in 2001.
United believe Real would have to go a long way past that figure before they would be willing to do business and they have no intention of making it easy for the Spanish club.
