THE LATEST ON DE GEA’S MANCHESTER UNITED CONTRACT EXTENSION

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is into the final year of his Manchester United contract and he is yet to sign a contract extension.

However, Manchester United have the option of extending his contract at the club by another twelve months until the summer of 2020.

According to reports, De Gea is yet to sign a contract extension because he is concerned about United’s ambitions with the club failing to win the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

A report on Manchester Evening News claim United are confident De Gea will sign a new contract after longtime suitors Real Madrid completed the signing of Thibaut Courtois in the summer.

De Gea is reportedly willing to extend his contract but he wants Manchester United to prove the club can still match his ambitions in his peak years.

De Gea recently revealed he’s happy to be at Manchester United.

“I feel we love this club, the fans, all the people who work for this club, so I’m really happy to be at this club,” De Gea told reporters when asked about signing a new deal before the win against Young Boys last month.

“It’s one of the best clubs in the world so, for me, it’s really good to be part of this club.”
