David De Gea has decided to stay at Manchester United after talks with Jose Mourinho, according to Sunday Times journalist Duncan Castles.
Castles, who’s thought to have close links to Mourinho, claims Real Madrid have an option to sign De Gea for £47m, but that option expires on June 15th and the transfer won’t happen as the Spanish giants have failed to persuade the goalkeeper to leave United this summer.
The former Atletico Madrid player, who’s currently representing Spain at Euro 2016, made 49 appearances for United last season and was voted Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year for a third consecutive year.
Keeping De Gea at Old Trafford would be a massive boost for the club ahead of the new season and it’d allow Jose Mourinho to fully concentrate on strengthening his squad this summer.
De Gea is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League and Mourinho has a much bigger chance of creating a team good enough to mount a title challenge next season with the Spaniard between the posts.
