David de Gea is stuck in a stall deal with Manchester United to extend his current deal to Old Trafford.
Red Devils' number 1 is asking for £ 350,000 salaries a week to commit his senior years in the club, according to the mirror.
The 28-year-old has been the object of strong interest from Real Madrid, having failed to accept new terms in recent years.

De Gea currently earns 200,000 pounds a week but believes he should be alongside people like Alexis Sanchez becoming one of the club's best earnings.
The United States is reluctant to give in to the demands of De Gea but they are confident of being able to reach a compromise with the Spanish national team.
United triggered a one-year extension in the goalkeeper's contract in November of last year to prevent the clubs from talking to him during a transfer from the north west of Manchester.

While De Gea has long been tied to the move to Real Madrid, a move for the Bernabeu now seems to be out of the cards following the acquisition of Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea last summer.
The £ 35m purchase of the Belgian national seems to have ended their search for De Gea if it were available.
However, De Gea made it clear in the past that he would be willing to commit his best years to United if it was possible to make the right deal.
De Gea completed his transfer from Atletico Madrid to United in the summer of 2011 and has continued to establish himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
