Manchester United

De Gea targets trophies after penning new United deal

16th September 2019, 16:06 by Craig Smithson

David De Gea signed a new contract to keep him at Manchester United until at least summer 2023 and immediately set his sights on winning more silverware.

The 28-year-old Spain international goalkeeper has become an integral part of the Old Trafford squad since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2011 in a deal worth around £20million.

De Gea has helped United win the Premier League, the FA Cup, the League Cup, the UEFA Europa League and the Community Shield during his 367 appearances for the club.

And, following 18 months of uncertainty and links with a return to his homeland with Real Madrid, he has now penned a new deal, which also has the option to extend for a further year.

De Gea said it has been a “privilege” to spend the last eight years at United and he is honoured to continue his career with the club.

In addition to helping the Red Devils’ youngsters progress in the coming years, he is also desperate to bring more success to the fans.

He told the club’s website: “Now my future is fixed, all I want is to help this team achieve what I believe we can and win trophies again, together.

“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.”

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also spoke of his delight that De Gea has pledged his future to the club and said he “has proved himself to be the best in the world and a vital part of our plans as we look to take Manchester United back to where it belongs”.

United have had a mixed start to the new season with eight points from their opening six matches and currently sit in fourth position in the embryonic Premier League table.
