Manchester United and goalkeeper David De Gea have begun talks on a new contract to keep him at Old Trafford past this season. De Gea’s current deal expires in June, at which point he would be able to move to Real Madrid on a free transfer.

//
A proposed move to sell De Gea to Real failed after paperwork was submitted just minutes after the transfer window closed last week, ensuring the 24-year-old will stay with United at least until January.

Real were reported to have agreed to pay around €30 million to sign De Gea. But De Gea’s agent Jorge Mendes was seen attending Man United’s training complex on Thursday, with major media outlets reporting that talks are underway on a new deal. It was also widely reported in Spain that De Gea would commit to an extension, with Marca saying he will sign a five-year contract, worth €9m per season, which was the initial offer made to the goalkeeper earlier this year.

Earlier on Thursday, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez ruled out a deal for De Gea in January and suggested he expected the goalkeeper to sign a new contract at Manchester United.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal had refused to play De Gea until the end of the transfer window, and the Premier League club still have not announced if he will start against Liverpool on Saturday.
