In spite of all the criticism that Manchester United has been receiving in the past few weeks and months, there is somebody in the team that can be salvaged and that’s David de Gea. There is no doubt whatsoever that if it hadn’t been for the spectacular performances that the Spanish goal-keeper has displayed time after time, match after match, Manchester United would not be in the top spots of the Premier League.
It does not come as a surprise to listen rumors and news that keep spreading around claiming that top clubs such as: Real Madrid, Manchester City and Juventus are interested in signing David de Gea.
Jorge Mendes is the agent of David de Gea and the Portuguese agent has stated that he is currently negotiation a contract extension with Manchester United that would be keeping his client tied down to the Premier League club on a long term deal.
“I am negotiating with Manchester United about De Gea’s renewal. It is not true that De Gea has found a deal with Real Madrid. I’m negotiating with Manchester United his extension.” Jorge Mendes told the media.
The current contract of David de Gea with Manchester United expires in 2016 and he could be leaving Old Trafford on a free transfer unless the English team can secure a contract extension.
Even with all of the underwhelming performances that the Premier League club is currently going through, David de Gea has stated on a number of occasions that he is happy in Old Trafford and it’s highly likely that the Spanish goal-keeper will want to remain at Manchester United for an extended period of time which is excellent news for Louis van Gaal and the supporters of the club as David de Gea has turned into one of the best goal-keepers in the world even though he is only 24 years old.
