David De Gea has officially signed a new contract at Manchester United.

After months and months of speculation, the star goalkeeper has finally committed his long-term future to the Old Trafford outfit. The new deal will keep him at the club until at least June 2023, with an option to extend for a further year.

After putting pen to paper, the Spanish international told the club’s official website: “It has been a privilege to spend eight years at this great club and the opportunity to continue my career at Manchester United is a genuine honour.

“Since I arrived here, I could never have imagined I would play over 350 games for this club. Now my future is fixed, all I want is to help this team achieve what I believe we can and win trophies again, together.

“As one of the senior players in the squad, I want to support and lead in any way that I can to assist the younger players, so they know what it means to play here. I still feel that I have so much more to achieve at the club and I truly believe that Manchester United can build on the club’s tradition of success and reward our fans for their support.
