Solskjaer confident De Gea will sign new contract

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident David De Gea will sign a new contract at the club.

The Spanish international’s future had appeared uncertain as talks stalled over a new deal, with the goalkeeper having entered the final year of his contract at Old Trafford.

Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus were believed to be monitoring the situation, however, reports have suggested that the 28-year-old is now close to signing new deal to remain in Manchester.

Manchester United boss Solskjaer has said he hopes that talks will be concluded ‘soon’, in a deal that will see De Gea earn a reported £350,000-a-week and become the best-paid goalkeeper in world football.

“David’s had a summer now where he’s been negotiating and thinking about his contract, so we hope that we’re going to get it sorted soon,” Solskjaer said at a press conference in Perth, Australia.

“I’m positive. Of course, with David, I’ve said many a time how lucky I am, and how happy we are, to have him in the goal. So we hope he stays here for many years.”
