Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea says he intends to remain at Old Trafford for a long time. He has already been at the Red Devils for almost a decade but after signing a four-year contract extension last summer, he has reaffirmed his commitment to the club:
“Yeah, I’m getting older. Just to be a part of this club is amazing. So imagine, 10 years, it’s like a dream. It’s great to play games with this club, so I hope I can be here more years, many years.”
De Gea’s comments may give us a clearer picture about Dean Henderson’s future. The 23-year-old will return to United this summer after completing his second year on loan at Bramall Lane.
Blades boss Chris Wilder has expressed his desire to keep the shot-stopper for a longer period, although he admitted that a lot will depend on United.
With De Gea seemingly going nowhere, Henderson is unlikely to be happy warming the bench next campaign so it may be a question over whether the Englishman is sold or loaned out again.
If it is the former, Sheffield United may not have the funds to compete with other teams so Wilder will be hoping that another temporary switch is on the cards.
