Will de Gea stay?

The Spain international continues to stand out as Uniteds one player of world-class ability, and, while his form may not be quite of the ridiculous standard which has seen him pick up four of the clubs last five Player of the Year awards, he remains the one asset the Old Trafford hierarchy can barely contemplate losing.

However, Jose Mourinhos recent public assessment of De Geas ongoing contract talks sparked major concerns in some areas of the United fan base, especially since there have been suggestions that Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are keeping an eye on developments.

"I am not confident but I am also no worried," Mourinho said to Sky Sports when asked if he was expecting De Geas ongoing contract talks to reach a positive resolution. "I can not find the word in English. Lets just see what happens."

There are only six months remaining on the former Atletico Madrid stars current deal, and, even though United hold the option to extend the contract by a year until 2020, the failure to agree new terms before next summer is likely to see the club seriously consider cashing in on the No.1 rather than potentially lose him for nothing 12 months later.

De Gea famously came very close to leaving the 'Theatre of Dreams' in August 2015, when he was a faulty fax machine away from signing for Real Madrid, but he has continued to speak highly of his life in Manchester and is thought to be keen to extend his stay.

United had initially looked set to prepare a deal worth 275,000 ($354,000) a week to keep him at Old Trafford but that projected salary has soared in recent months in light of his continued form and the clubs decision to sign Alexis Sanchez on a Premier League-record contract worth around 390,000 ($502,000) a week.

As a result, United now look set to offer De Gea anything up to 375,000 ($483,000) to get his signature on the dotted line. The one sticking point, though, is Uniteds form.

In addressing the speculation surrounding his future, he stated: "You have to be focused on what's important. What matters is the team and all of us being focused on what we need to focus, on which is winning games, rather than contracts or any topics that can be a distraction."

However, De Gea's potential renewal is obviously tied to United winning games something they are not doing a lot of at the moment.

With the club sitting in eighth place in the league table, well adrift of the pace-setters, and having already been dumped out of the Carabao Cup, De Geas hopes of being a part of a trophy-winning team have been hit by the inconsistencies on show ahead of him.

It is widely accepted to be a far greater reflection of the time and space being afforded opponents in Uniteds defensive half of the field rather than any shortcoming of the goalkeepers, but it is still something which could potentially have a knock-on effect when it comes to persuading the Spaniard to prolong his stay.

However, the 27-year-olds affection for his life in Manchester weighs in Uniteds favour, as does the combination of Real Madrids summer swoop for Thibaut Courtois and the Spanish press unforgiving assessment of his form for the national team.

With the Blancos not in the market and De Gea adored and heralded in England like never seen in his homeland, the keepers heart is far from anchored in Spain.

Juventus and PSG also seem like curious potential suitors, with both outfits seemingly happy with their lot in the goalkeeping department for the time being.

Juve have been pleasantly surprised by the form of Wojciech Szczesny since the Pole took the No.1 shirt from Gianluigi Buffon, while the Bianconeri also have the highly-rated Mattia Perin waiting in the wings.

Meanwhile, in Paris, there is also a surfeit of quality between the posts, with Buffon and Alphonse Areola currently sharing the duties, and Kevin Trapp also out on loan with Eintracht Frankfurt.

As such, everything points to a positive outlook for United as they look to pin down De Gea to a longer-term contract.
