It has been reported that Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has welcomed David de Gea’s new contract.
De Gea has penned a new four-year deal with the option for a further year.
Van Gaal was understandably pleased by the fact that De Gea had committed his future to the club.
“I am absolutely delighted David has signed a new contract,” the United manager said.
“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.”
