After going back and forth during the summer in a bid further of his career with the Los Blancos, David De Gea has decided to put pen to paper in a contract extension that will see him remain at Old Trafford over the next four years.
The Spain international was in the centre of a transfer drama at the close of the transfer window – he wanted move to Madrid and even agreed personal terms with the Los Blancos. However, the deal failed to pull through due to delay in the documentation.
He made bare his mind on the new development as a Manchester United goalkeeper.
“I am delighted to be starting this new chapter in my United career. I have always enjoyed playing with these great players in front of our fantastic fans. Manchester United is a special club and Old Trafford is an ideal place for me to continue to develop my career. I’m looking forward to putting a difficult summer behind me and concentrating on working hard to improve and help my teammates to be successful.”
De Gea was in the final year of his contract for United and this will delight all the fans of the Red Devils as he was the mainstay of United for last season.
De Gea, 24, joins United in the summer of 2011 – he has since then registered 175 appearances for the club and winning the EPL with United in 2013. Last season, he was voted as the most valuable player for the Red Devils.
