David de Gea set for new contract talks with Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United are reportedly set to enter talks with David de Gea over a new contract, according to The Times.

Back in March there were similar rumours that talks of a new deal for De Gea were going to take place but as of yet, the rumours are yet to be substantiated.

De Gea’s progress as a goalkeeper since his arrival at United has been nothing short of phenomenal and at just 23, he is United’s undisputed No.1.

His form hasn’t gone unnoticed internationally either and he was rewarded for a strong season with United by being taken to the World Cup after Victor Valdes withdrew through injury.

This week, he took the next step towards becoming Iker Casillas’ successor for Spain by making his full international debut against France in a friendly and over in Spain, he is already being touted as the new No.1.

At 23, De Gea has already achieved so much, especially in goalkeeper years as typically it takes longer for a goalkeeper to establish himself at such a top club.

From United’s perspective, the board should be doing everything within their power to make sure De Gea signs a new contract.

This summer has shown that money isn’t an issue any more and as Real Madrid are likely to circle over De Gea’s head like a vulture, it’s imperative the club offers United whatever De Gea wants to keep him at Old Trafford.
