His current £210,000-a-week contract runs out next season, with the option of a further one-year extension.

We exclusively revealed last month how United are planning to sit down with De Gea to get him to sign a new long-term deal.

The Spanish stopper was happy to ask for around £300,000-a-week to put him on the same amount as team-mate Paul Pogba.

But he now wants to go beyond that and get another £50,000 on top, making him the second highest paid star at United.

An Old Trafford insider said: “The financial reality has completely altered for David and his people in terms of what his next deal should be worth.

“Last year it was thought getting closer to £250,000 a week would be realistic.

“He has seen United have even deeper pockets that even they first imagined. He is ready to go to a lot more.

“The goalposts have shifted dramatically with what the likes of Sanchez, Pogba, Lukaku and Ibrahimovic are on.

“David knows his next contract could be his last big one and that Real Madrid are still hovering in the background.

“He also knows his true worth to United and that he should be paid commensurate to his standing and the rapidly changing market.”

United want contract talks with De Gea sealed before the end of the season, and have it signed before he leaves for the World Cup.

He has been a key figure in Jose Mourinho’s side pushing for the Premier League title this season, with a series of stunning performances.
