The 24-year old is set to stay at Old Trafford after putting pen to paper for a new four-year contract with the option of a year renewal afterwards.
Manchester United appears to have taken advantage of the break down in relationship between the goalkeeper’s agent, Jorge Mendes and Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez to reach the massive deal which will come as a huge of sigh relief for United fans.
The club is excited and so is the player.
Speaking about his new deal, De Gea said: “I am delighted to be starting this new chapter in my United career. I have always enjoyed playing with these great players in front of our fantastic fans.
“Manchester United is a special club and Old Trafford is an ideal place for me to continue to develop my career.
“I’m looking forward to putting a difficult summer behind me and concentrating on working hard to improve and help my teammates to be successful.”
