Man Utd star David De Gea hints at signing new long-term contract with deal running out at end of season | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED star David de Gea has hinted that he'd like to sign a new long-term contract at Old Trafford.

The Spaniard has been the Red Devils' No1 since 2011, but has entered the final 12 months of his current £375,000-a-week deal.

Man United do possess the option to extend the contract by a further 12 months.

And De Gea appears to want an even longer stay – despite recently being linked with Juventus.

After yesterday's 2-1 victory over Everton at Goodison Park, the 31-year-old told BT Sport: "I'm just very focused on the games helping the team as much as I can.

"Of course, I would like to be here for more years, so let's see what happens in the future. I'm really, really happy here."

"It was massive for our confidence, we have to look forward to the next games. It's an honour to be here, it's a privilege.

"It was great to be in goal today, with the team fighting for three points.

"He's [Ronaldo] never been in this situation before [starting on the bench], but the way he works and trains, it's just unbelievable. It's not easy times for him, but he showed he's a great player."

United's win saw them climb to fifth in the Prem table – just one point behind the Champions League places.
