Solskjaer ‘is confident’ much talked about £100 million rated Spaniard De Gea to sign deal with Manchester United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident that David De Gea will soon sign a new contract with Manchester United.
United are on a mission this summer to acquire some world class players and get the club challenging for more than a top four spot next season, with rumours that around £200 million could be spent by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
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 is 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 Solskjaer has suggested that a deal is close to being signed.
Asked about De Gea’s situation, United boss Solskjaer said on the Daily Express website: “David has had a summer now where he’s been negotiating and thinking about his contract, so we hope that we’re going to get it sorted soon.
“I’m positive. Of course, with David, I’ve said many times how lucky I am and how happy we are to have him in the goal, so we hope he stays here for many years.”
But United have De Gea, one of the games best and they should do all they can to persuade the Spaniard to stay, as losing him would be a massive blow to the immediate success of the club.
So rather than making moves to try and find some adequate replacements, United should be fully focused on getting De Gea to commit his long-term future with the club.
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.
