De Gea extends United stay

Goalkeeper David De Gea has signed a new long-term contract with Manchester United, keeping him at the club until 2023, with an option to extend his stay for a further year.

The Spain international joined United in 2011 and has made 367 appearances so far, during which he won the Premier League, the FA Cup, the League Cup, the UEFA Europa League and the Community Shield.

The deal – which will see the 28-year-old earn between RM1.8million and RM1.95million per week – makes him the world’s highest-paid goalkeeper, according to Sky Sports News.

“It has been a privilege to spend eight years at this great club and 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. Now my future is fixed, all I want is to help this team achieve what I believe we can and win trophies again, together.

“As one of the senior players in the squad, I want to support and lead in any way that I can to assist the younger players, so they know what it means to play here. I still feel that I have so much more to achieve at the club and I truly believe that Manchester United can build on the club’s tradition of success and reward our fans for their support.

“I am committed to continue repaying the fans for all of the care that they’ve shown me during the good times and the bad,” said De Gea.
