De Gea and Solskjaer react after Manchester United deal is signed, sealed and announced!
David de Gea told Manchester United that he is delighted to have officially signed back up with the club.
United were on a mission this summer to acquire some world class players and get the club challenging for more than a top four spot this season.
But there has been a lot of speculation in the media over the past few months which have suggested that the Red Devils could lose one of their biggest players, as De Gea could not agree a new contract at the club.
It was believed that United did not offer the Spanish stopper the kind of deal that he would have liked, and that led to speculation that the likes of PSG, Juventus and Barcelona could all come calling to try and nail down his services.
However, the Old Trafford giants have offered the 28-year-old a new and improved deal in an attempt to finally agree upon a contract extension, and the Spaniard HAS FINALLY AGREED A NEW DEAL!
De Gea told the official club 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.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added: “I am delighted that David has committed his long-term future to the club. Over recent years, David has proved himself to be the best in the world and a vital part of our plans as we look to take Manchester United back to where it belongs. David is a fantastic person and his outstanding quality provides the perfect base to our defence.
“Over his time here, David has really understood the values of playing for Manchester United and now represents everything you want in a goalkeeper. As a player he is still hugely determined and hungry to achieve more. We all look forward to working together to meet those ambitions over the coming years.”
De Gea is one player that United simply cannot afford to lose this transfer window as he is one of the biggest players at the club, in the premier League and in the game right now, he is a superstar, and it will come as great news that he has agreed a new deal with the club.
THEY CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE THIS GUY!
