Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said that he is uncertain whether or not shot-stopper David De Gea will sign a new deal to remain with the club.
The Spain international goalkeeper joined the Red Devils from La Liga side Atletico Madrid in 2011 and he has since made 327 appearances for them.
The 27-year-old has won the Premier League title and several other major honours during his time at United, but recently, the goalie has been the subject of several interest from Champions League winners Real Madrid, who brought in Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea to be their new goalkeeper over the summer – according to Sky Sports.
Despite the fact that Real Madrid look to have filled the position, for now, David De Gea remains one of the most highly sought-after goalkeepers on the continent and with the Red Devils struggling at the start of the new campaign, they will be keen to keep hold of the shot-stopper for the foreseeable future.
As per Sky Sports, the Spaniard’s present contract runs out next summer and as such, the side has been trying to tie the Number 1 down to a contract extension recently, to no avail so far.
United are gearing up for an important Premier League encounter against Merseyside club Everton on Sunday at home, where anything less than a victory could see them drop further behind their direct Premier League title rivals at the apex of the log.
De Gea’s continued excellent display will again be important for the side, who have looked very vulnerable at the back over the last couple of months.
