De Gea Extends Man U Contract Until 2023


David De Gea has signed a new four-year contract with Manchester United that will keep him at the club until 2023.

De Gea has previously been linked with a big-money move away to Real Madrid and came close to joining them in 2015.

The Spaniard’s form, however, has dipped in recent months but United have pushed to keep one of their best players in recent years at Old Trafford.

De Gea told United’s official website: “It has been a privilege to spend eight years at this great club and the opportunity to continue my career at Manchester United is a genuine honour.

“Since I arrived here, I could never have imagined I would play over 350 games for this club. Now my future is fixed, all I want is to help this team achieve what I believe we can and win trophies again, together.

“As one of the senior players in the squad, I want to support and lead in any way that I can to assist the younger players, so they know what it means to play here.

“I still feel that I have so much more to achieve at the club and I truly believe that Manchester United can build on the club’s tradition of success and reward our fans for their support.

“I am committed to continue repaying the fans for all of the care that they’ve shown me during the good times and the bad.”
