Manchester United are open to offering goalkeeper David de Gea a new deal in the coming weeks.
The Spaniard was one of United’s players in the turmoil season and 90 Minutes reports the club want to tie him up for another deal as they consider him a top player who will be useful to new coach Eric ten Hag.
However, others oppose such a move as De Gea has since lost his place with the national team and there was a point where his Manchester United position was under threat from England international Dean Henderson and the 31-year-old struggled desperately to regain control. His form and position in the United goal.
90 Minutes revealed in February that De Gea and United were ready to hold talks about his future, and it is now understood that the club have decided they want to give him new terms as his current deal expires in 2023.
United also have the option to extend the deal by a year, as they look to peg him for longer – with his peak years as a goalkeeper likely.
With the contract of six players expiring at the end of June and a number of contract players for sale, United don’t want to lose the core of the squad and feel De Gea can play a big role in renewing it.
