Report: Spanish newspaper publishes details of new De Gea contract

David Gea saves against Sunderland

David de Gea has repeortedly agreed a new deal with Manchester United

Spanish newspaper Sport has had its say regarding Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea and his alleged new contract at the club in its print edition.

Rumours began to circulate on Tuesday and now reports in the stopper’s homeland – later published by Sport Witness – suggest he has agreed a new deal that ties him to the club until June 2020.

The report claims a source close to the player has confirmed that a new deal has been agreed.

If the latest report is true, it is fantastic news for United and their fans, with the 24-year-old now undeniably among the very best players in his position in the game.

Over the last two seasons, the Spaniard has blossomed, putting a shaky start well and truly behind him to become the player former manager Sir Alex Ferguson hoped he was signing from Atletico Madrid.

Back then De Gea had the reputation but his age and the change in surroundings meant he was always going to take time to settle.

De Gea’s current deal expires in the summer of 2016, and until United make an official announcement it would be wise for the Old Trafford faithful to remain sceptical.

But now the reports have shifted to his homeland, and given how he has developed in England, it would make sense if De Gea committed his long-term future to a club who are blessed to have him.
