Real Madrid are set to be spurned once again in their chase for the Spanish number one

David de Gea is close to agreeing a new deal to stay at Manchester United.

The Spaniard is once again being courted by Real Madrid, but talks are said to be progressing over a new contract at Old Trafford worth around £220,000-a-week.

The Times reports that United are looking to keep him until at least the summer of 2021.

De Gea almost single-handedly secured the Red Devils a 0-0 draw away at Sevilla in their Champions League last 16 clash.

It led to him even being congratulated by the opposition for a wonder save from Luis Muriel.

He is undoubtedly one of, if not the, first names on the team-sheet for Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, and now the 27-year-old is set to be rewarded.

Real Madrid are also interested in signing Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea, but De Gea remains their top choice.

But just like back in 2015, the Spanish giants look set to miss out on the goalkeeper once again.

Back then, the paperwork was delayed over a £29.3m move to the Bernabeu, with the upheaval leaving De Gea furious.

It led to the stopper agreeing a new deal to stay with the Premier League outfit.

He currently has 18 months still to run, but the Red Devils are not prepared to delay over tying him to a longer deal.

De Gea was hailed by a host of United legends for his stunning save from Luis Muriel in the recent Champions League clash.

Paul Scholes was in no doubt that the Spaniard is the best keeper in the world while Rio Ferdinand celebrated like United had scored.

As the first half drew to a close, Colombian striker Muriel got away from United’s centre-backs as a cross came in from the right.

But Muriel was left in disbelief after putting his header too close to De Gea, who flung out a right hand to claw it away.

BT Sport pundit Scholes said: “He’s the best around, there’s no doubt about that. It’s a sensational save.

“He must have saved the team so many points, he’s been the player of the season.”

Ferdinand added: “He’s outright the best keeper in the world.

“It was unreal, he’s been doing this for a couple years now.

“I celebrated it like it was a goal for Man United. That’s saved United.”
