David De Gea, the goalkeeper for Manchester United, may be offered a testimonial as an incentive to accept a pay cut. The footballer has been presented with a new contract that would reduce his current basic salary of £375,000 per week by almost 50%. Although Manchester United has been linked with other goalkeepers, they are keen to retain De Gea, whose contract expires next summer. The club’s manager, Erik ten Hag, has publicly supported the Spaniard, but there are concerns that he may not be the team’s first-choice goalkeeper next season. De Gea joined Manchester United in 2011 and has spent a decade at the club. Plans for a testimonial were postponed due to the pandemic, but the club is keen to recognise his long service if he signs a new contract soon. Manchester United has reportedly scouted other goalkeepers, including Diogo Costa from Porto, Jordan Pickford from Everton, and David Raya from Brentford. However, De Gea kept a clean sheet in the team’s recent match against Bournemouth, and a point from their last two games will secure a Champions League spot.
