Manchester United fans can now relax. David de Gea has put pen to paper on a new 5-year deal with the club.
Real Madrid have been pursuing Spain's number one goalkeeper for a very long time but they have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Chelsea's number one keeper Thibaut Courtois and this could be the best news of the summer for Manchester United. David de Gea has been Manchester United's most important player for the last few years, he has saved Jose Mourinho's side many times and many points.
David de Gea almost signed for Real Madrid back in 2015 only for the deal to collapse in that latter stages of the deadline day due to a fax error which could not print out the international papers of the Spanish goalkeeper and that is the luck that Manchester United have always wanted.
The Spanish goalkeeper has risen to become a hugely popular figure at Old Trafford, and rightly so, he is arguably the best goalkeeper in the world and was voted the Supporters Player of the Year. The 27-year old was key in Manchester United's second place finish last year in the Premier League and will be hoping to lead them to the crown this year.
David de Gea signed for Manchester United from Atletico Madrid in 2011, however he struggled during his first few seasons including a very dull moment when Sir Alex Ferguson benched the Spanish goalkeeper for ex-Manchester United and current Burnley goalkeeper Anders Lindergaard, however times have changed and now David de Gea holds the reputation of the best goalkeeper in the world. The £17 million that Manchester United paid back in 2011 is now a bargain considering the current state of the transfer market and the amount of money being shelled out by clubs on random players.
