De Gea Contract Saga: Mourinho Expresses Lack Of Confidence

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he’s not confident that goalkeeper David De Gea will commit his long-term future to the club.

The former FC Porto and Real Madrid boss talked about the contract situation concerning the Spanish international shot stopper while speaking ahead of his side’s Premier League clash with Everton on Sunday evening.

Mourinho, 55, also pointed out that he’s not too worried about the first-choice goalkeeper’s prospects of signing a new deal and that the Red Devils will be weaker without the former Atletico Madrid stopper.

The Spanish international goalkeeper has been in the news following reports that the Premier League giants are finding it hard to tie him down to a new deal at the club.

His current deal expires at the end of this season though Manchester United reserve the right to activate the clause of the additional year in his contract.

David De Gea has recovered well from a poor outing at the recent World Cup tournament in Russia.

He was part of the Spanish team that crashed out at the first knockout stage in Russia.

De Gea has distinguished himself as one of the consistent performers in the Manchester United team despite their underwhelming start to the season.
