It has been well documented that David de Gea’s current Manchester United contract expires this coming summer. I think we all want the Spaniard to stay beyond his deal, although given results recently, we couldn’t really blame him if he left.
However, it looks as though the Red Devils are set to keep ahold of the best goalkeeper in the world for a little longer, as according to a report from the BBC, United are set to trigger a one-year contract extension which currently exits within his deal.
In doing so, this just buys United more time. Either the club will be able to work their magic on him for another year and convince him to put pen to paper on a new long-term deal, or Edward Woodward will cash in on De Gea in the summer of 2019 – in order to not lose him on a free transfer. Obviously, we all hope it’s the former.
There has been some excellent news in regards to De Gea over the last few days, though, with the Spaniard’s camp optimistic that he will remain at Old Trafford and sign a new deal – but only if the club matches his ambition. Honestly, we should just pay him whatever he wants and get this deal done because we desperately need him to stick around.
