Manchester United set to trigger one year extension in star's contractPublished January 14, 2017
Manchester United have already secured Marouane Fellaini for another year, and now it seems they’re set to do the same for David De Gea.
The Sun claim Jose Mourinho has asked the board to secure De Gea’s immediate future, and make sure he’s tied down to the club for an extra year.
That would of course fend off any potential interest from Real Madrid – something that seems to arise time and time again with each transfer widow, and this would certainly be a statement from the Red Devils.
United are on an unbeaten run of nine games, and are certainly looking far better than they have since the days of Sir Alex Ferguson, meaning De Gea may well be more inclined to commit his long term future to the club.
Naturally, Mourinho wants winners and the best at United, and there aren’t too many better than the Spanish goalkeeper, who has shone for United, even when the rest of the team have been poor.
De Gea meanwhile seems happy in Manchester – and with the team improving, may sense a real chance to win top trophies.
