David de Gea’s new contract at Manchester United will run until 2025, earning the Spain goalkeeper more than £110million over six years.
United has fhasly reached an agreement with De Gea’s representatives over the £375,000-a-week deal that will be signed when the club return from their pre-season tour.
The 28-year-old would have a been a free agent next summer and it’s understood that he thought long and hard over his future amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain.
But sources close to De Gea have indicated that he genuinely believes United can be successful again during his time at Old Trafford, and is also grateful to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching staff for the support they gave him at the end of last season. The Spaniard was said to be at low point following a series of blunders that cost United goals, but Solskjaer resisted calls to axe him from the team. De Gea also likes working with Emiliano Alvarez, his former mentor at Atletico Madrid who followed him to England.
United put Dean Henderson’s future on hold until De Gea’s contract talks were finalised but the 22-year-old is now expected to return to Sheffield United on loan after helping them win promotion to the Premier League last season.
United see Henderson as a potential first-choice keeper and the player is keen to stay at Old Trafford long-term despite interest from Bayern Munich.
