Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea will stay at the club until at least the end of the 2019/20 season after the club activated the clause of an additional year in his current Red Devils contract as confirmed by Sky Sports.

His Manchester United contract was initially expected to run out at the end of this campaign but the Red Devils have triggered a one-year extension to take him to 2020 at Old Trafford.

David De Gea has not been able to agree to a new deal with Manchester United thus prompting doubts about his long-term future at the club.

The 28-year-old has been linked with European heavyweights such as Italian Serie A giants Juventus and French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) as a result of the uncertainty surrounding him at Manchester United.

Recent reports claim that French giants PSG are ready to break the banks in a bid to prise him away from Manchester United.

David De Gea is widely regarded as one of the top three shot-stoppers on the world football scene.

He joined Manchester United from Spanish side Atletico Madrid in 2011 for a fee of around £18.3m and has been a key player for the Red Devils for almost a decade.
