David de Gea prefers to remain at Manchester United for many more years

David De Gea has insisted on remaining at Old Trafford for many more years. The Spaniard is in the final year of his current contract.

Manchester United have been a basket case since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. The Red Devils have struggled to reach the lofty heights the Scotsman took the club. They have fallen down the ladder and watched clubs like local rivals Manchester City dominate the scene, while eternal foes Liverpool have ridden them roughshod.

The club has struggled to attract top talent due to its poor plan, mismanagement and a hilarious reward system. In the past, Manchester United scrimped on money when they needed to shell it out and splashed on the unnecessary. Players like Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire are on fat contracts when they should be at clubs like Bournemouth or Norwich City.

During their walk through the wilderness, David De Gea usually came under a stick for the failures of United. They said he is not a ball-playing goalkeeper (whatever that means), yet he has been the most consistent performer for the club. There are debates over a contract extension for the Spaniard, and he has declared he would like to remain at Old Trafford for a few more years.

David De Gea wants to remain with the Red Devils

Once upon a time, Real Madrid were all over David De Gea, looking to lure him to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. The Spanish giants could not convince De Gea then, and he has remained a consistent feature for Manchester United. Goalkeepers have been at Old Trafford, but none has managed to wrest the number one shirt off him.

There are debates if De Gea should get a new contract after accusations of a drop in form. The Spaniard has insisted that he would like to remain at Manchester United for many more years. The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper has been between the sticks for many years and kept the Red Devils in contention for titles during his spell at Old Trafford.

After the win over Everton at the weekend, De Gea had to answer questions about his future at the club. The Spaniard didn’t give off much, but he said he preferred to remain at the club for many more years. The Manchester Evening News published the comments by the goalkeeper. According to the report, De Gea is content with life at the club.

A topsy-turvy form this season

In fairness to critics of David De Gea, he has not been at his imperial best, but the Spaniard has not been a bad goalkeeper. The criticism of his performance this season has been exaggerated. Manchester United suffered some deflating losses at the start of the campaign, but it was hardly his fault. However, Erik Ten Hag has been able to steady the boat following a good run of results.

There has been no challenger for his position, making him a constant feature in goal for Manchester United in the past 18 months. Jordan Henderson was in the news, making a case why he should start ahead of De Gea, but the English goalkeeper has found his level at Nottingham Forest, where he is doing a goal bazaar for opponents.

Should De Gea decide his time at Manchester United is up, he would not be short of takers. Real Madrid will not be one of those clubs as they are well-staffed.

De Gea has made over 490 appearances for Manchester United, and his contract expires in 2023. United have the option of extending his deal by a further season. There have been rumours the club is looking for a new keeper.
