David De Gea is in “no rush” to sign a new contract at Manchester United, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that although the Red Devils have reopened talks with the goalkeeper about extending his stay at the club, he is not under pressure to commit to a new deal just yet.

De Gea’s current contract at Old Trafford is due to expire in the summer and the article says that Manchester United must trigger the one-year extension to his contract before 1 January if they want to prevent him from talking to potential foreign suitors in the new year.

However, the same report says that Manchester United triggering the extension is a “formality” and that the Red Devils effectively see him as contracted to the club until the summer of 2020.

De Gea has earned a reputation as one of world football’s top goalkeepers since his arrival at Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid back in 2011.

The 28-year-old has been a regular fixture in the Red Devils team this season and has started all 13 of their Premier League games so far.

He will be expecting to start between the posts when Manchester United travel to Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
