David De Gea gives hints on his future, Mendes suggests the player will stay in Manchester


Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has given a clue that he could be staying at Manchester United, with possibly a contract extension being signed. For weeks now, the Spaniard has been reported to be close to signing a new deal, with plenty of speculation suggesting he could sign for Real Madrid in the summer, or even leave on a free at the end of his contract. De Gea has been one of the standout players again this season, in what has so far bee a better season than the last, with United sitting in third place in the Barclays Premier League and heading into the fifth round of the FA Cup.

De Gea’s agent Jorge Mendes has also given a suggestion as to the future of the 24-year-old, with the press suggesting that the Spaniard will receive a £140,000 pay rise to put him on £200,000 per week, which would make him the highest paid goalkeeper and certainly show the player how much the club rates him. There is no doubt that De Gea could be the best goalkeeper in the world, and staying at United would be the best way he can actually achieve that. Manager Louis van Gaal has stated that he wishes to keep the player, and United would look pretty silly allowing such a crucial player like De Gea leave the club, especially when they are in a period of rebuilding.

Speaking to El Enganche, De Gea confirmed that he was happy at Manchester United, which sounds good, especially with the fact that his contract has not yet been extended, which has been worrying many of the clubs supporters over the last few months. The Spaniard said:

“I feel very happy at Manchester United. I feel very loved by everyone and the people in the club. I’m happy, playing well which is important and although it is true that the team is not as good as I wished, we are going to improve gradually. We must focus this year on doing something good.”

De Gea’s agent Jorge Mendes was interviewed by the BBC, mainly about Sir Alex Ferguson, who he feels the club miss, and Jose Mourinho, one of his clients. He also spoke about De Gea, who is subject to lots of speculation. Speaking to BBC Sport, Mendes, the Portuguese super agent suggested that his client would stay at the Old Trafford club, suggesting the player was happy. He said:

“He has one year left on his contract and I think that he will stay in Manchester.

“The player will decide, but he’s happy there, at the moment.”

Mendes also reiterated his stance about on loan striker Radamel Falcao, with the Colombian struggling to cement himself in Louis van Gaal’s plans this season, despite him scoring against Leicester City at the weekend. Speculation suggests that United may not secure the services of the once-prolific striker in the summer, with Mendes saying:

“If he will not stay in Manchester, he will play for sure in one of the biggest teams in Europe.”

Falcao suffered a pretty devastating injury only a year ago, and it could take time for him to reach the heights he was once at, but there is no doubt that he is improving, as he has done since his debut. He’s getting used to the system and his team-mates and hopefully before the end of the season, he will click into place with United securing his services, as next season, he could play against United, and that prowess he had before injury, could return, which would be a tough blow.
