Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has confirmed they have offered Manchester United target David de Gea a new deal.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to have lined up a move for De Gea as he seeks a replacement for Edwin van der Sar who is retiring at the end of the season.
Atletico have continually played down suggestions that a deal has been agreed with United and now they have offered the keeper a new improved contract to try and keep him at Vicente Calderon.
"De Gea is a magnificent player in the squad and has two years left on his contract. We [have] made a renewal offer," Cerezo told Europa Press.
"But it does not depend on us. We will speak to him at the end of term and see what happens."
