Manchester United are preparing to open contract talks with David De Gea as they look to tie the goalkeeper down to a new contract, according to reports in the British media.

The Independent is reporting that the Red Devils are keen to extend De Gea’s current deal at Old Trafford, which is due to expire in the summer of 2019.

The same story claims that Manchester United are “confident” that De Gea will commit his immediate future to the Premier League club, despite him having been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent years.

The article also states that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is keen to get De Gea tied down to a new contract at Old Trafford before the new year.

De Gea has earned a reputation as one of the world’s best goalkeepers since his transfer to Manchester United from Atletico Madrid back in 2011.

He has been a regular starter for the Red Devils in the Premier League this season and will be hoping to help Manchester United win the title for the first time since 2013 this term.

De Gea will be expecting to start for Manchester United when the Red Devils take on CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
