I’m not Confident of De Gea’s New Contract- Mourinho
The United number 1 has proven to be an important member of the team, having signed for United in 2011, he has won Man Utd player of the year award four times in the last five years and won the Golden Glove last season.
The Spain international has been ever-present for United this season, playing in all nine of the club’s Premier League games, though he has conceded a total of 16 goals.
His current contract is set to expire at the end of the season, though the club hold the option to trigger a year-long extension, and the Red devils are keen to extend his deal.
“I am not confident, but I’m also not worried,” he told Sky Sports. “I cannot find the word in English, but let’s see what happens.
“Only the club, David and his people can answer that. My comment is only that everyone knows how good he is, how important he is for Manchester United and if the club want to be better than it is and not worse, obviously it would be very important to keep David.”
De Gea had hinted at signing a new deal in September, but it appears that recent developments may have thrown his decision into doubt.
