De Gea Not Focusing on New Contract
Following manager Jose Mourinho’s comment on Friday that he is “not confident” David de Gea will extend his contract, but has urged the club to keep him, the goalkeeper insists his concentration is on his contract situation but on winning games for Manchester United.
The Spanish goalkeeper’s current deal runs out in the summer – although United do have the option to extend this by a further year – and talks have been ongoing for several months.
And in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports ahead of United’s meeting with Everton on Super Sunday, De Gea says he is looking to avoid any distracting talks of a new deal.
“What matters is the team and all of us being focused on what we need to focus on, which is winning games, rather than contracts or any topics that can be a distraction. What matters is focusing on football.
“We have an important game against Everton and we have some big fixtures over the coming months. I think that’s what matters, rather than thinking about anything else.”
United face Everton at Old Trafford tomorrow.
