David de Gea’s Shaky Place in Manchester United Is Rumored to Be Extended
Manchester United are set to offer goalkeeper David De Gea a contract extension and extend their eleven-year relationship with the Spaniard.
David De Gea joined Manchester United in 2011 from Atletico Madrid as a 21-year-old. Brought in during the time of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, DDG has slowly evolved into one of the best goalkeepers in the world. De Gea is one of the few members of the current team who have tasted Premier League glory with the Red Devils. In total, he has gone on to make 483 appearances for the club, while keeping 164 clean sheets. He is also a full-time international for the Spanish national side.
His contract is set to expire in 2023, but his experience as a top-level professional could help in United’s aim to return to the top of both England and Europe. The 31-year-old is one of the leaders of the United dressing room.
De Gea has seen many iconic managers come and go at Old Trafford, but his place has always been assured. Despite the occasional mistake, De Gea has always been consistent in goal and has been United’s savior countless times. In fact, in a United side that has been on a downward spiral over the last few years, DDG has been one of their torchbearers.
With Ajax manager Erik ten Haag set to become the new manager next season, an exodus of players is expected at Old Trafford. But De Gea does not seem to be a part of that list as he will be one of the first names on the team sheet. He himself has expressed his excitement, and desire to work with the Dutchman. If Ten Haag is to succeed at United, De Gea will no doubt be a pivotal part of the strategy.
