Manchester United first-choice goalkeeper, David De Gea is “fed up” with Jose Mourinho’s reign at the club.

The former Real Madrid boss is currently under pressure to turn things around at Old Trafford.

It is understood Jose is also losing his battle in the dressing room, with reports claiming that several United players believe that the 55-year-old will be sacked

He has been involved in a tense verbal exchange with the midfielder, Paul Pogba while Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly have also been publicly criticised by Mourinho.

De Gea is out of contract in the summer although Manchester United do have a clause they can trigger to extend it by another year.

But they are trying to agree terms on a new deal to show De Gea they appreciate him.

However, according to the Daily Mirror, De Gea wants a huge rise on his £175,000 a week deal and is eyeing £300,000 a week.

Sanchez penned a deal worth around £500,000 a week with add-ons and is the highest paid player in English football.

And De Gea, along with Anthony Martial, wants a rise to suit the new wage structure at the club.
