Manchester United number one goalkeeper, David De Gea, has revealed he plans to stay at the club for many years to come, despite claims he may be forced out by Dean Henderson, who has become famous in recent times due to his exploits at Sheffield United.
Speaking about his future, De Gea told Daily Mail: “I’m getting older.
“Just to be a part of this club is amazing. So imagine, 10 years, it’s like a dream. It’s great to play games with this club, so I hope I can be here more years, many years.”
De Gea joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2011, and immediately established himself as the first choice goalkeeper.
The Spaniard, has however not been his usual self in recent times, and has made some costly errors in goal, leading to criticism from fans.
Meanwhile, United loan star, Dean Henderson has been very impressive at Sheffield, and there’s talk he may be asked to stay back and compete with De Gea at the end of the current campaign.
It’s unlikely Henderson will immediately depose De Gea as number one, but he surely passes for a decent competition, and if the Spain international doesn’t get back to his brilliant best soon, things can turn against him.
