Manchester United are looking in an absolutely red-hot form in the Premier League this season so far and have already won five of their last six games in the campaign to have the best possible start to the season. The Red Devils are presently standing on the second spot right behind their arch-rivals Manchester City, with just goal difference separating the two clubs.
After their dismal performance in the Premier League in the last term, the former champions are looking desperate to get their hands on the much-desired title to win it for the 14th time in their history. The Red Devils spent a huge amount in the transfer market this summer and have brought in a number of top-class players into the side, who have performed as per expectations in the season so far.
However, they have also got a number of players in their team who have been influential for them in the last few seasons, one of them being the Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea, who has been nothing less than a rock beneath the crossbars for the 13 time Premier League champions.
The 26-year-old shot stopper has been an integral part of the Manchester United side since his arrival at the club in 2011 and has played a very important role in their triumphs so far at the domestic as well as European level.
He has been pursued by a number of big-name clubs in the last few seasons, including his native club Real Madrid, who had even submitted a bid for him in the summer transfer window before the last season commenced, only to see it getting scuppered due to some last minute technical glitches.
The Spanish international is considered to be one of the finest custodians in the modern scenario in European football and will undoubtedly be a very good addition to the Galacticos’ lineup so as to guard their goal safely. However, the Red Devils are reportedly looking to tie him down at Old Trafford for some more time to come with a new contract, with his current one expiring in 2019.
With brilliant ball-handling skills and the ability to take on the opposition strikers in the most difficult of situations, De Gea is clearly one of the best players who is needed dearly by the Red Devils if they need to succeed this season while participating in Premier League as well as Champions League.
As a result, it is going to be crucial for Manchester United that the player agrees to a new deal and stay back at Old Trafford for some more seasons to come.
