De Gea outlines desire to stay at Manchester United.

De Gea has revealed that he wishes to spend the rest of his career at the Theatre of Dreams.

Goalkeeper David de Gea has expressed his desire to continue plying his trade at Manchester United as his current contract winds down. The Spanish shot-stopper’s contract at Old Trafford is set to expire at the end of the season, although the Red Devils have the option to trigger a one-year extension.

However, the 32-year-old is convinced he will be putting pen to paper on a new contract with Man United soon following talks regarding an agreement for a longer renewal.

"I'm very relaxed. I just focus on training and performing as best as I can. But, for sure, it's going to end in a good way," De Gea told Sky Sports.

"I hope [to stay for the rest of my career]. I was saying this is my club, I've been here many, many years and it's a huge honour to be here and I'm so happy here."

Following a poor start to the 2022-23 campaign, United turned the corner and have now found momentum under manager Erik ten Hag and they currently sit fourth level on points with third-placed Newcastle. And De Gea said of the significant improvement that has taken place this term compared to the previous.

"We were talking, everyone is ready, everyone is focused, everyone is training really well, everyone is in the same direction, so this is massive," the Spaniard added.

"It doesn't matter who is playing. Even the substitutes, it doesn't matter who came in, they put everything on the pitch, we have great team spirit and for me, it's great to see the players play in this way."
