David de Gea expected to sign new deal with Manchester United

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has confirmed the club would like to keep goalkeeper David de Gea.

“I think we want him to stay and he wants to stay so I think we will find each other,” said the 53-year-old, via Simon Stone.

The Spanish shot stopper has been the Red Devils number one since joining the club in 2011, taking over from long term goal keeper Edwin van der Sar.

De Gea has made 56 appearances for United this season, keeping 25 clean sheets, and only conceding 58 goals.

However, many have complained about de Gea’s ball playing ability this season after making some big mistakes leading to goals trying to play out from the back.

His pass completion stats are in the bottom 16% amongst other goalkeepers in world football, having a 31.2% pass completion per 90 according to Fbref.

Manchester United face Fulham at Old Trafford in their final game of the season, before facing Manchester City in the FA Cup final on June 3rd.
