Less than 24 hours after Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho conceded that he wasn’t sure about the Old Trafford future of David de Gea, the Spaniard has talked about it himself.
As cited by Sky Sports, the Manchester United manager made his admission yesterday and while he couldn’t really find the appropriate word, he did eventually claim that he had worries over the contract situation but stressed how important the Spaniard is to the team.
The Spain international goalkeeper himself has now discussed the matter in an exclusive interview with Broadcasters Sky Sports, but truly, De Gea hasn’t done so much to ease fears other than a claim that he’s a happy man at Manchester United.
That doesn’t really translate into penning a new long-term deal with the club to commit his future anyway, and so until he signs the dotted lines, Man Utd fans might have to wait anxiously, hoping that their first choice goalkeeper remains with them for many more season.
He told Sky Sports his focus is on winning matches for the team, rather than contract talks or any other distraction.
The goalie further stressed that having spent eight years at the club, he’s very happy at Old Trafford and always feel the warmth from Man United fans and staff at the club.
David De Gea’s present contract at Manchester United runs out at the end of the campaign, but the Red Devils have an option to elongate the deal for a further season. While it would make a lot of sense to activate that option, the ideal scene is getting their influential player to sign a long-term deal to seal his future.
