De Gea Spurs v Man United

De Gea planning for ‘many years’ at Manchester United and hails ‘clever’ Fernandes

David de Gea has revealed he is hoping to be at Manchester United for ‘many years’ to come, while also joining the long line of players to praise the impact of January signing, Bruno Fernandes.

The Manchester United ‘keeper has long had a question mark surrounding his future at the club, famously coming within minutes of joining Real Madrid back in 2015.

The latest questions to his future have come following a spell of indifferent from the Spain international, form which has coincided with youngster Dean Henderson – currently on loan at Sheffield United – being among the most in-form ‘keepers in the Premier League this term.

The 29-year-old has been United’s number one for approaching nine years now, and despite the likely challenge from Henderson for the gloves, De Gea has eyes on a lengthy stay at Old Trafford.

“Just to be a part of this club is amazing. So imagine, 10 years, it’s like a dream,” De Gea said on a United hangout. “It’s great to play games with this club, so I hope I can be here more years, many years.”

Before the current football suspension, Manchester United were on an impressive 11 game unbeaten run, a run which has coincided with the arrival of Bruno Fernandes back in January, with De Gea describing him as ‘a clever player’ and ‘top midfielder’.

“I think the whole team improved a lot. We were in a good moment. I think we were in very good, top form,” De Gea continued.

“We didn’t concede many goals and, of course, with Bruno he brings a lot of quality. He’s a clever player, a top midfielder.

“The team improved with him and it was a pity that everything stopped because we were in a good moment, but hopefully with some players that were injured will be fit when it all starts again, so it will be a good challenge for everyone.”
