Metro have Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern looking up from their pints with massive smiles on their faces and we do not blame them.
The reason for their glee is not the happy hour beer deals, rather the fact that David De Gea is moving closer and closer to signing a new deal with the club and that of course keeps him out of the clutches of Real Madrid.
Not only is De Gea keen to extend his stay at Old Trafford but Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly cooling his interest in the Spaniard and will look elsewhere as he looks to replace Iker Casillas – not that the La Liga leaders are doing too badly on that front, with Keylor Navas still occupying the bench after his summer move!
News that De Gea is willing to commit his future to the club is a huge boost for Louis van Gaal who has seen his in-form side struggle recently and having one of his best players extend his stay at the club could well be seen as the backing the Dutchman needs.
Manchester United fans. Is this the best news you’ve heard all week? Will De Gea manage to sign the new deal? Let us know your thoughts below.
