David de Gea 'unimpressed' by Man Utd contract offer as Erik ten Hag lines up replacement
| Last updated
David De Gea has been left unimpressed by Manchester United's latest contract offer, according to reports.
Indeed, the Spaniard's reported £375,000-a-week wage would make him the highest earner at the club, as the Premier League giants aim to reduce their hefty wage bill.
It is labelled the 'Ronaldo rule', with the Portuguese superstar taking home over £500,000-per-week during his most recent stint at Old Trafford.
However, Football Insider report that De Gea has turned his nose up at United's most recent contract offer, after snubbing United's initial proposal earlier this month.
The publication insists that De Gea is happy in Manchester and willing to take a pay-cut, but the 32-year-old has been left 'unsatisfied' with negotiations so far.
Man Utd identify De Gea replacement
In the event that United are unable to reach an agreement with De Gea, Ten Hag has allegedly identified his replacement.
Team Talk understand that Valencia shot-stopper Giorgi Mamardashvili is on the club's radar, after a breakthrough season in La Liga.
The 22-year-old has been the Spanish side's saving grace, keeping them in the fight for safety amid amid relegation fears.
But transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports that Mamardashvili is expected to leave Valencia at the end of the season, despite signing a recent contract extension.
