Manchester United's David De Gea wants to stay at Old Trafford
David De Gea has pledged his future to Manchester United by stating he wants to win trophies under new manager José Mourinho, who he describes as a ‘winner.’
The Spanish goalkeeper has been permanently linked with a move back to Spain under the reign of Louis van Gaal, and he came very close to departing for Real Madrid on deadline day of last summer, only for a big money move to fall through over paperwork at the last minute.
But the former Atletico stopper looks set to remain at Old Trafford for the foreseeable future, telling MARCA that he has three years remaining on his contract, and he expects to see them out whilst winning trophies under his new boss.

"Talk about Jose Mourinho and you're talking about a winner," De Gea told MARCA.
"Winning is United's, Jose's and my philosophy.
"We can make a great team and I welcome him."
“People talk a lot and they know little," the keeper said regarding his future.

"I know how all this works, but what I think is disrespectful is when people start making out that it's something I have said."
“I've got three more years on my contract with United and the desire to win more titles here."
De Gea has been a consistent standout performer for United in the years of turbulence following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

He has won the club’s Player of the Year award three years on the spin, and he is a huge favourite at Old Trafford.
And these recent comments will be a massive boost for the Red Devils faithful, who have long feared that the world class stopper would seek pastures new.
