De Gea signs new United contract, says Man Utd is a special club

After one of the most dramatic and longest transfer saga in football which involved Real Madrid, David De Gea and Manchester United, the Spanish goalkeeper  today signed a new four-year contract with Manchester United with an option to extend it for a further year.

David De Gea said:

“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. 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.”

Louis van Gaal said:

“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.”

This will end all speculations linking him to Real Madrid, hopefully he can move on from all the saga and continue his brilliant display from where he stopped last season.
