De Gea Extends United Stay until 2023
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has signed a new contract that would see him remain at the Old Trafford club until 2023.
The 28-year-old Spanish International has put an end to rumours linking him with a move away from the club by committing his future to the Red Devils.
The deal will see the former Atletico shot-stopper earn a reported £375,000 a week wages making him the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world.
"It has been a privilege to spend eight years at this great club", said De Gea. "Now my future is fixed, all I want is to help this team achieve what I believe we can and win trophies again, together.”
"The opportunity to continue my career at Manchester United is a genuine honour since I arrived here, I could never have imagined I would play over 350 games for this club.”
The new contract sees United get the option to extend the contract for a further season.
De Gea joined Manchester United in 2011 from Atletico Madrid for £18.9m.
He has made 367 appearances for the club winning the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, and Europa League title. He has also been capped 40 times by Spain.
