Jose Mourinho provides extremely positive contract update on superstar, believes player will sign new contract

I get the feeling that Manchester United fans are going to be extremely happy this evening… First, the news that Diogo Dalot is all set for his Premier League debut, now this massive update by Jose Mourinho regarding David de Gea.

The Spaniard had a one-year extension clause in his contract that has just been activated, but all indications from the self-proclaimed Special One lead me to believe that the 28-year-old will be here in the long-term.

In a strange turn of events, Mourinho also tipped his cap to agent Jorge Mendes, with the self-proclaimed Special One believing that De Gea won’t chase the money, but instead, follow his heart.

“He wants to stay, and of course I want him to stay. He is the level of player Manchester United needs.” Mourinho told reporters, including Sky Sports News.

“Manchester United needs the best players in the world. If we want to be Manchester United, we need the best players in the world.

“We have the best goalkeeper in the world. Obviously, the manager wants him to stay and the board wants him to stay.

“David wants to stay and his agent [Jorge Mendes, who also represents Mourinho] wants him to do what the player wants – he is not the kind of agent that is manipulative, like others and tries to influence the player.

“His agent will let him think and decide by himself, so I think the point is just to agree the contract that the club wants to give and the player wants to accept.

“That is just my feeling, but I think they (the talks) are going to finish well.”

As Mourinho accurately states, we’re talking about one of the best players in the world here. De Gea has been superb for United over the last half-decade, and we’re immensely lucky to have him.

If he does decide to stay, then that’d mean he’d likely see out his best years as a Red Devil. If the performance levels don’t increase, we could be looking at a true United legend, and the best goalkeeper in our history. Now, it’s down to the club to help him deliver trophies that his insane ability deserves.
