Manchester United Ace Is Set To Pen A New Contract: A Good Move For Both Parties?

In a recent interview before Manchester United’s clash against Leeds United at the Optus Stadium on Wednesday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provided an update on the contract situation surrounding David De Gea’s future (via Manchester Evening News) and said, “He’ll play tomorrow and hopefully we can agree with David.

“As I’ve said a few times, that’ll be up to David and the club to announce if that happens, if and when.”

Manchester Evening News has claimed that the Spanish goalie will be in line to bag at least £350,000-a-week if he decides to commit his long-term future to the Red Devils. De Gea’s current contract at Old Trafford runs out next summer so Solskjaer’s recent update will ease some of the nerves of the Man United supporters.

De Gea’s Remarkable Career At Man United

The Mancunian outfit are in dire need of retaining all of their best players in this off-season so that they can secure a top 4 berth in the upcoming campaign. De Gea’s incredible contributions in between the sticks have bailed Man United out on numerous occasions over the past few years.

The 28-year-old has a stellar record in Premier League football, having made a total of 275 league appearances for the Red Devils while conceding 278 goals and securing 101 clean sheets thus far. 

The former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper has also earned 39 international caps for Spain. However, his form took a huge dip when he was representing his nation in last summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.

What Does The Spaniard Offer On The Pitch?

De Gea usually have a very safe pair of hands in goal. Barring the occasional mistake, he is an exceptional goalkeeper who can pull off some world-class saves when his team needs him the most. However, his ball-distribution still has some room for improvement. So the Spaniard needs to work on his passing accuracy if he wants to justify his place as the best goalkeeper in world football.

De Gea Set To Pen New Contract: Good Move For Both Parties?

Retaining De Gea could prove to be a massive coup for Solskjaer as he tries to rebuild his squad for the new campaign. The Spanish international will undoubtedly benefit from signing a lucrative deal with the Red Devils as he is already quite settled at Old Trafford. Overall, it will be a move that will help both the player and the club as they try to win some trophies in the coming years.
