Manchester United set to pay off David de Gea's huge contract

Manchester United are set for a goalkeeping clearout and that may require a huge payoff for David de Gea, though Juan Mata might be given one more year at Old Trafford despite getting little game time. 
De Gea to receive payoff
Manchester United will give David de Gea a huge payoff to leave the club, according to the Mirror. The 30-year-old Spanish international is on around £350,000 a week with two years left on his deal, and United’s owners want rid of him to reduce their outlay. They are also paying £70,000 a week to Sergio Romero, and Lee Grant and Joel Pereira will also be on their way out.

***: De Gea’s contract at the time seemed like a huge outlay but a risk worth taking given he had been one of the best goalkeepers in the world, but he has been unable to get back to his most reliable form. Getting rid will free up funds and allow Dean Henderson to develop, and he too could be moved on next summer if he does not seize his chance.

Atletico lead race for Winks
The Daily Mail claims that Harry Winks is set to leave Spurs in the summer. The 25-year-old England international has Spanish heritage, and is wanted by Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Sevilla, with Diego Simeone’s side in the lead for his signature. Another side in contention for the £20m-rated player is Premier League team Everton, with Oliver Skipp ready to take over his role when he comes back from Norwich. 
United could extend Mata stay
Manchester United could spring a surprise by offering midfielder Juan Mata another year at Old Trafford, reports the Star. The club could extend his deal by activating another season, which would also ensure that they could command a transfer fee of £5 million should he be sold in the summer. However the 32-year-old Spaniard would also be happy to stay on, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and others believing him to be a good influence at the club, while Paul Pogba may stay.
