Manchester United legend lets slips superstar De Gea has signed up with Solskjaer’s side?
Manchester United legend Gary Neville seemingly confirmed David de Gea has signed a contract extension at Old Trafford moments after the side’s 4-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday.
Regarded as one of the finest stoppers in the game right now, De Gea has been one of the best players at Old Trafford in recent years and is arguably the only world class player at the Manchester side right now.
But despite his wonderful appearances and status in the squad, there has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media that he could actually leave this summer, as he could not come to an agreement over a new contract.
However, there has been reports in the media over the past few weeks that talks are going well between De Gea and United, and that a deal will be struck soon with an announcement to follow shortly after.
It has been reported that United chiefs tabled a £350,000-a-week offer to De Gea this summer, which they expect him to sign.
And speaking from the gantry after the win, in which De Gea made seven saves, Neville seemingly announced that the Spaniard is already signed up to a new deal.
He was quoted on the Daily Express: “You’d hope with De Gea now signed and Maguire as a centre-back, Pogba, at the moment, in midfield is obviously world-class on his day, and then you’re talking about up front… Manchester United have got threats.”
The club are desperate to keep De Gea, who is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world and know that they will find it very difficult to find an adequate replacement, as they are simply not too many world class stoppers left out there.
So United fans will be hoping that De Gea has signed up a new deal as many are sick of all the speculation and rumours that he has signed, he hasn’t signed, he has signed, he hasn’t signed, etc etc etc.
United need to buy world class players and keep hold of their best players if they are to get back into the habit of winning the Premier League and challenging for that Champions League title.
So at the end of the day, DE GEA NEEDS TO STAY….END OF!
