Manchester United secured goalkeeper David de Gea's future with a new bumper contract, but where does he now rank amongst the club's top 10 highest earners?

De Gea, 28, has made 367 United appearances since his arrival from Atletico Madrid as a skinny teenager in a £18.9m transfer eight years ago.

There were several doubts around his suitabilty for the Premier League due to his slender frame but was often publically backed by then manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
 
And over the past eight seasons the Spaniard has repaid the Scotsman's faith, even in his absence as one of United's standout players since his retirment.
 
It was reported that de Gea, widely considered as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, would opt for a transfer at the end of the season - with Juvenuts and Paris Saint-Germain mooted as potential suitors.
 
But on Monday, the Red Devils announced that de Gea had put pen to paper on a four-year extension, worth a reported £350,000 a week, as per the Guardian.
 
"Now my future is fixed, all I want is to help this team achieve what I believe we can and win trophies again, together," he told the club's website.
 
"It has been a privilege to spend eight years at this great club. Since I arrived here, I could never have imagined I would play over 350 games for this club.
 
"I still feel I have so much more to achieve at the club and I truly believe that Manchester United can build on the club's tradition of success and reward our fans for their support.

"I am committed to continue repaying the fans for all of the care that they've shown me during the good times and the bad."

The 40-time capped Spain star lifted the Premier League title in 2012/13, the FA Cup and both the League Cup and the Europa League under Jose Mourinho in the 2016/17 season.
