David De Gea has signed a long-term contract with Manchester United which will keep him at the club until 2023. The new deal includes the option to stay for another year beyond that.
According to Daily Mail, De Gea’s new contract will see him earn £375,000-a-week, making him United’s highest paid player.
His new deal ends years of speculation linking him with a Manchester United exit with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain strongly interested in the Spanish goalkeeper.
De Gea signed for United from Atletico Madrid back in 2011 and has since made 367 appearances for the club.
He has won the Premier League title, the FA Cup, the EFL Cup and the UEFA Europa League during his time with United.
De Gea said: “It has been a privilege to spend eight years at this great club and the opportunity to continue my career at Manchester United is a genuine honour.
“Since I arrived here, I could never have imagined I would play over 350 games for this club.
“Now my future is fixed, all I want is to help this team achieve what I believe we can and win trophies again, together.
“As one of the senior players in the squad, I want to support and lead in any way that I can to assist the younger players, so they know what it means to play here.
“I still feel that I have so much more to achieve at the club and I truly believe that Manchester United can build on the club’s tradition of success and reward our fans for their support.
“I am committed to continue repaying the fans for all of the care that they’ve shown me during the good times and the bad.”
