Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is reportedly ready to extend his stay at Old Trafford beyond his current contract at the club.

According to a report from Spanish news outlet Sport via sportwitness, the former Atletico Madrid shot stopper will extend his contract by 12 months meaning that his current deal will now expire at the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

The report further claimed that the Red Devils exercised the clause of an additional year in his current deal which expires at the end of this season and that both De Gea and his agent Jorge Mendes were in agreement with the development as stipulated in his Manchester United contract.

The Spanish international goalkeeper has repeatedly been linked with a move away from the club.

Italian champions Juventus are one of the clubs mentioned as a possible destination for the 27-year-old.

David De Gea joined Manchester United in 2011 from Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid and he’s widely regarded as one of the top three stoppers on the world football stage.

He helped the Red Devils win the 2012/13 Premier League title in addition to the 2016 FA Cup title.

David De Gea was also a big part of the team that won three trophies during the 2016/17 campaign.
