– David de Gea has committed his long term future to Manchester United
– The 28-year-old signed a three-year contract extension at Old Trafford until 2023
– De Gea was signed from Atletico Madrid by Alex Ferguson in the 2011 season
David de Gea has signed a new deal to stay with Manchester United until 2023.
The Spain international has spent eight seasons at Old Trafford since he was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson for £18.9million back in 2011.
And the 28-year-old has gone on to help United win the Premier League title in 2012-13, the FA the League Cup and the Europa League.
“Now my future is fixed, all I want is to help this team achieve what I believe we can and win trophies again, together,” said the Spaniard.
“It has been a privilege to spend eight years at this great club.”
“The opportunity to continue my career at Manchester United is a genuine honour.
“Since I arrived here, I could never have imagined I would play over 350 games for this club.
“I still feel I have so much more to achieve at the club and I truly believe that Manchester United can build on the club’s tradition of success and reward our fans for their support.
“I am committed to continue repaying the fans for all of the care that they’ve shown me during the good times and the bad.”
De Gea has been in between the sticks for United in their first five Premier League games in the new campaign and moved up to fourth place on the log following a 1-0 win over Leicester City.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “I am delighted that David has committed his long-term future to the club.
“Over recent years, David has proved himself to be the best in the world and a vital part of our plans as we look to take Manchester United back to where it belongs.”Loading...

United have already been awarded four penalties in five Premier League season matches, managing to convert only two of them.
