David de Gea is set to sign a new contract with Manchester United. The new five-year deal is worth over €15million net per season, according to sources familiar with the negotiations, reports Daily Record.
The goalkeeper’s current contract runs until 2020 and there were rumors that he could be leaving Premier League side.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the goalkeeper is keen on staying with the Red Devils.
“I am very – well – I am pretty confident it will get sorted. He’s not said anything to me other than he loves this club and wants to stay here, and he’s had a fantastic time,” Solskjaer said during a press-conference ahead of Leicester City game on Saturday.
“You need to ask David and the club [how conversations are going]. I’ve not been involved in the discussions. So let’s just hope we get it over the line.
“He can see what we’re doing here. We want the best players here and the ones we want – most of the time – stay. There aren’t many that we want to keep that we don’t manage to.
“I am confident we will manage to convince David that here is the future for him – and a successful future.”
