This is fantastic news for United fans as there has been plenty of uncertainty over De Gea’s future. The Spaniard only has one year left on his current deal meaning the Reds risk losing him on a free at the end of next season.
However, these comments with provide some comfort to fans that the 28-year-old will be kept at Old Trafford.
In his eight year stay at United, De Gea has been the club’s most consistent performer and established himself as one of the best goalkeeper’s in the world.
The Spain international dipped in form last year, perhaps distracted by question marks over his future, which we now hope will be sorted and he puts pen to paper on a new deal in the coming weeks.
