David De Gea has agreed a brand new deal with Manchester United.

The Spanish international had previously failed to agree terms with the Old Trafford club, and was expected to depart on a free transfer next summer.

But now, after having thought long and hard about his future, the goalkeeper is finally ready for a long-term commitment with the Mancunian outfit.

According to the Telegraph, De Gea has agreed a new six-year contract with Manchester United, and will officially put pen to paper soon.

This new deal is worth around £117 million, and will effectively make De Gea the highest paid goalkeeper in the world, and also the second-highest paid player at Manchester United, behind Alexis Sanchez.

The club’s willingness to make him the highest paid player in his position, coupled with the support he received from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the coaching staff during his poor spell, played a huge role in his decision to remain at the club.

Further, the 28-year-old loves working with goalkeeping coach Emilio Alvarez, and he wishes to continue doing so for the years to come.

De Gea also believes that it is only a matter of time before Manchester United begin competing for major honours and rise back to the top again, and he intends to be a part of that team and keep doing a stellar job between the sticks.
