BREAKING: De Gea signs five-year Manchester Utd deal

David de Gea has agreed a new five-year deal with Manchester United.

The Spanish international will end constant talk of a move to Real Madrid by committing his future to Old Trafford.

Champions League winners Real have long-hoped to lure De Gea back to his homeland, with president Florentino Perez accepting it would take a world-record fee for a goalkeeper of £100m to take him to the Bernabeu.

United have always remained adamant they would not sell their prize asset – and were confident he would not agitate to leave. But that has not stopped near-constant links with a move to Real, who came so close to landing him in 2015.

Only a deadline day administrative error prevented De Gea from heading to the Spanish giants back then. Shortly after he signed a new four-year contract with the option of a further 12 months.

Jose Mourinho has ruled out any chance of allowing his No.1 to leave this summer, with United intent on triggering his option. regardless of whether a fresh contract was agreed.
