#DaveStays: Twitter explodes as De Gea signs new deal with MUFC

Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea has signed a new four-year deal with Manchester United which will keep him a Red Devil until at least 2019.

De Gea was subject of the biggest transfer saga over the summer, with him coming exceptionally close to making a move to Real Madrid, only for it to falter at the last hour, after a delay in the submission of paperworks.

However, he has now reaffirmed his commitment to United, claiming that he’s delighted to be able to continue developing his career at Old Trafford.

“I am delighted to be starting this new chapter in my United career. I have always enjoyed playing with these great players in front of our fantastic fans,” he told

“Manchester United is a special club and Old Trafford is an ideal place for me to continue to develop my career. I’m looking forward to putting a difficult summer behind me and concentrating on working hard to improve and help my teammates to be successful.”

Manager Louis van Gaal was equally ecstatic with the news and believes that De Gea will only get better over the next few years.

“I am absolutely delighted David has signed a new contract. He is one of the best goalkeepers in world football. I am very pleased that he will be part of the team for many years to come.

“David made a very important contribution to our performance last season and he has been the club’s Player of the Year for the last two seasons.

“He is a popular player who is keen to learn and enhance his game. At such a young age for a goalkeeper, he has many years ahead of him,” he added.

Man United fans were visibly excited about the news as they took to Twitter to express their delight!
