David de Gea is happy with his current form at Manchester United and wants to sign a new contract.

The Spaniard will make his 500th appearance for the Red Devils against Newcastle United on Sunday and intends to remain between the sticks at Old Trafford for more seasons.

Although his contract expires at the end of the season, United hold the option to extend it by a further year.

Having started in all of the club’s Premier League and Europa League games so far, the 31-year-old “feels good” about his situation under Erik ten Hag.

“This is my club and this is where I feel good. I’m playing well – I feel very well. I think I have many more years to play. I feel confident,” said De Gea.

“Yes, I would like to stay here more years and make records of games and records of everything. To try to help the young people here as well with my experience and try to win trophies.”

It remains to be seen whether United are as pleased as De Gea with his form and reward him with a new deal.

De Gea has been omitted from Spain’s squad due to his lack of quality in possession. However, he has kept his starting spot at United despite his underwhelming start to the campaign.

Martin Dubravka’s arrival on deadline day from Newcastle hasn’t changed anything, with Ten Hag opting to play deep and keep less possession of the ball instead of dropping the world’s best paid goalkeeper.
