Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea will be staying at Old Trafford for the remainder of the 2015-16 season after his move to Real Madrid fell through.
Although De Gea has one year remaining on his contract and could leave on a free next summer, The Metro reports that he is leaning toward signing a new deal with United.
De Gea has had differences with United manager Louis van Gaal and was eager to transfer to Madrid, but he now apparently feels inclined to pen a new deal.
The 24-year-old was reported to be upset with not being able to go to his desired destination, but he is fearful that Van Gaal will continue to keep him sidelined if he doesn’t sign a new deal.
De Gea has already been kept out of the team since the United manager felt that the transfer rumours were too much of a distraction.
Sergio Romero remains the Red Devils’ starter for now, but it remains to be seen whether De Gea can regain the No.1 jersey once again.
