Manchester United are increasingly optimistic about agreeing a new deal with goalkeeper David de Gea. The 27-year-old’s future has been repeatedly questioned since he came close to joining Real Madrid three years ago and United are desperate to keep hold of the Spain international.
Thibaut Courtois’ move from Chelsea to the Bernabeu last week has taken his most obvious destination out of the equation, boosting United’s hopes of agreeing a new contract with De Gea.
Reports claim that United’s hierarchy are hoping to begin negotiations over the coming weeks as they look to get a deal wrapped up as swiftly as possible.
The Spaniard’s current contract expires next summer with a further year existing as an option to be triggered by the club.
