Goalkeeper De Gea wants to extend his contract with United

LONDON: Goalkeeper David De Gea has expressed hope to continue with his current team, Manchester United, which compete in the English Premier League, and help him put an end to his dream of winning titles after a “disastrous” season. De Gea’s current contract expires in June 2023 and the Spanish goalkeeper, who arrived at the club from Atletico Madrid in 2011, he said he wanted to extend his contract with the club. “If they let me stay, I would definitely stay,” De Gea told reporters on Friday. I feel really relaxed and happy and I hope I can win something before leaving ”. De Gea announced that he has not yet started negotiations for the extension of the contract with club. United had a disappointing performance last season and failed to qualify for the Champions League after finishing sixth with 58 points, the worst result in the Premier League era. United also failed to win any titles, extending their fast for five years. “It cannot be repeated because it was a disaster – said De Gea -. It was a difficult and sometimes shameful situation. Some matches were a farce. This was also painful, unacceptable and frustrating at times.” in preparation for the new season, Manchester United meets his compatriot Aston Villa in Perth, in Australia, on Saturday, before facing Atletico Madrid of Spain on the 30th of this month. United will start their career in the new English Premier League season by playing in home against Brighton & Hove Albion on 7 August next. (Reuters)
