David de Gea is in no hurry to put pen to paper on a new contract at Manchester United.
And European giants Paris Saint-Germain are closely monitoring his situation and are ready to swoop in if an opportunity arises.
De Gea – one of 11 United players whose contract expires in the summer – is of a mind to renew but his camp will see how things pan out amid the uncertainty at Old Trafford at the moment.
A dark cloud is hanging over United currently, with Jose Mourinho’s future very much in doubt following a very disappointing start to the Premier League season.
They sit a lowly eighth after as many games, having lost already to West Ham, Tottenham and Brighton – as well as getting knocked out at home in the third round of the Carabao Cup to Derby.
The Spanish international, who has been closely pursued by Real Madrid in the past, wants to see how things develop and United have an option to extend his current contract by a further year.
His compatriots and close friends Juan Mata and Ander Herrera also considering their options ahead of the expiry of their deals at the end of the season.
Mata is awaiting a new offer from United but has interest from Spain and Herrera has a contract offer but it’s below what he had expected.
