Man United trigger one-year extension on existing contract of 28-year-old star

Manchester United are ready to exercise their option in David de Gea’s current contract to extend his stay at The Theatre of Dreams by a year, according to sports television channel Sky Sports.

The Spaniard’s deal at Manchester United expires at the end of the campaign, but the report by Sky Sports reveals that Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho is ready to use the option in David’s contract to extend his contract by twelve months.

This will see the one-time Atletico Madrid man stay at Manchester United for at least another 12 months, with rumours still persisting about his long-term future at Old Trafford.

De Gea would have been free to speak to interested sides on the 1st January if Red Devils had not extended the contract.

However, the Premier League giants have tied down the goalkeeper to another year at Old Trafford and will look to secure his future at the club before the end of next season.

This season, in all competitions (Champions League and Premier League), the 28-year-old star has made 18 appearances, collected 5 clean sheets and 23 conceded goals so far.
