Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea is understood to have agreed on a fresh five-year contract with Manchester United. The 27-year-old has been annually linked with Real Madrid since his failed in 2015 but the Spaniard appears to have put an end to the speculation.
According to M.E.N, the Spaniard has agreed upon a fresh extension which would keep him at Old Trafford until the summer of 2023. An announcement regarding the same has yet to be made but it seems only a formality once the shot-stopper returns from the summer World Cup in Russia.
De Gea has gone from strength to strength in the club’s shirt over the past few years and this has witnessed him being named as the club’s Player of the Year more often than any other player since 2011. During this period, he has also produced a number of stellar displays which have single-handedly won United games.
Just a week ago, reports suggested that De Gea could seek a move to Los Blancos which may revive United’s interest in Jan Oblak, but the quick turnaround of events should come as a relief for Ed Woodward, who may now focus on strengthening other areas of the field.
