De Gea's contract with Manchester United expires at the end of the season, but the club can extend it for another year – an option they certainly take.
United tries to bind him even further and offered him a new deal, but the calls have come to a standstill.
And The Daily Mail claims that he will now leave after the campaign 2019-20 and signs a bumper £ 60 million deal with Ligue 1 giants PSG.
PSG are already the subject of an investigation by UEFA, who are trying to find out whether they have violated the rules for financial fair play (FFP).
They paid Monaco £ 162 million to permanently sign Kylian Mbappe in the summer, only a year after the breakdown of the world record transfer by buying Neymar from Barcelona for £ 200 million.
And the report claims that they could now look to sell Neymar to free up cash to finance the De Gea bumper deal.
Real Madrid is connected with a move for the Brazilian and barca would like to bring back to the Nou Camp.
The report says that PSG will be able to offer De Gea a four-year contract worth £ 15.5 million per year – which amounts to just under £ 300,000 per week.
It would be a huge blow for the United Manager Jose Mourinho who is in crisis at the end of the season.
He can also lose Anthony Martial, whose contract also ends at the end of the season.
Just as with De Gea, United can extend it for another year, but run the risk of losing it for free if it does not sell this summer.
Other players outside the contract are Juan Mata, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Ander Herrera and Ashley Young.
Paul Pogba's future remains uncertain and he has been associated with a stunning return to Juventus just two years after he left Turin to join United.
Inter Milan has reportedly started the race for the Frenchman, who has cut an increasingly lonely figure at Old Trafford.
Mourinho was able to use the winner of the World Cup to finance his own expenses while trying to stop their difficult start of the season.
A 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday left United seventh in the Premier League-table and they are now seven points away from the Champions League places.
Mourinho would be desperate to draw a new center back.
And Inter could offer him Milan Skriniar and Ivan Perisic in exchange for Pogba.
