David de Gea intends to stay at Manchester United

David de Gea wishes to remain at Manchester United despite suggestions there has been a bit of a push back over a new deal.

The Spaniard is currently the longest-serving player in the squad, having joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2011, but some reports in recent months have suggested that his time at Old Trafford could be coming to an end.

That doesn’t seem to be the case though. Although De Gea hasn’t got very long left until his deal expires, the 32-year-old has said he intends on staying at the club where he’s made 529 appearances.

On Wednesday, reports emerged from The Athletic that De Gea had rejected United’s opening offer of a contract extension.

“I’ve been here many, many years and have enjoyed every moment,” De Gea told Sky Sports (H/t Football Daily) when asked whether he would be signing a new deal at United.

“It’s great to be here, I love the club. It’s been the same over the years in terms of noise around the club but we have to just focus on the games and our performances are much more important than contracts or anything like that, so we have to stay on track.”

The same line is being echoed about Rashford’s deal and I would imagine that Erik ten Hag’s primary focus right now is on finishing the season strongly.

Then it will be time to discuss contracts.

Let us know in the comments section if you think United should give De Gea a new deal or look for another goalkeeper in the summer.
