DE GEA WAITS FOR ANSWERS MORE THAN MOURINHO
Manchester United are bound David De Gea for next season using the one-year option they have on their contract. But the Spanish goalkeeper is ready to make the club sweat over his future beyond the summer of 2020.
According to The Sun, De Gea wants to know whether Jose Mourinho will be on duty next season before agreeing to a longer extension. In addition to the fact that De Gea has committed to next year, the story does not suggest which answer the goalkeeper prefers.
De Gea also wants his requirements to match the club's highest recipients and, to be honest, it almost makes no sense for club players this year for four of the last five seasons to expect the same salary as Alexis Sanchez. The move continues with swimming, by the way …
De Gea is still at United reminding me that Terry Waite was chained to radiators in Beirut for 4 years.

JUVE LINE UP FREEBIES
Juventus are one of the clubs linked to De Gea and the Serie A champions will wait for one and a half years if necessary because they only like freebies.
Meanwhile, the Old Lady has seen several offers for next summer. Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is apparently their main target and The Sun reckons they are willing to offer a £ 200,000 Wales star a week for four years.
If for some reason Ramsey doesn't like it, then Juve will switch to PSG's Adrien Rabiot. One problem: they are rather late for the party. The France international is also wanted by Man City and Liverpool but it seems likely that the 23-year-old will do one of two things: sign a big new agreement to stay at PSG, or move to Barcelona.
ROSSONERI WANTS RONALDO
Elsewhere in Italy, someone at AC Milan tells a high story …
Former sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli considers the Rossoneri trying to bring Cristiano Ronaldo last summer but the deal was raised by the former owner. He told SportItalia: "Chinese owners blocked the deal because it was not sustainable. With the current owner CR7 will be a Milan player. "
Does anyone really use the term 'CR7' in a speech?
However, the new regime seems more willing to make a deal for Cesc Fabregas. Calciomercato taking into account the Chelsea midfielder has been told he can leave in January and AC Milan has begun talks. Sarri's mind is made, but it seems Roman Abramovich will need more convincing to allow the World Cup winner to leave.
