Manchester United goalkeeper, David de Gea, has signed a new four-year deal at the club, which will see him stay until June 2023.
The contract also has an option to extend for another year.
De Gea joined United in 2011, and has made 367 appearances so far.
The Spaniard had wanted to leave Old Trafford to join Real Madrid in 2015, but a fax machine error scuttled the move during the summer transfer deadline day .
The 28-year-old has won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Europa League and the Community Shield during his stay.
He expressed delight after signing the dotted lines:
“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.
“I am committed to continue repaying the fans for all of the care that they’ve shown me during the good times and the bad.”
United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who said he wanted the shot stopper to stay in last week’s press conference before the home game against Leicester City, insisted that the former Atletico Madrid number one, has learnt the values of playing for the club.
“I am delighted that David has committed his long-term future to the club. Over recent years, David has proved himself to be the best in the world and a vital part of our plans as we look to take Manchester United back to where it belongs. David is a fantastic person and his outstanding quality provides the perfect base to our defence.
“Over his time here, David has really understood the values of playing for Manchester United and now represents everything you want in a goalkeeper. As a player he is still hugely determined and hungry to achieve more. We all look forward to working together to meet those ambitions over the coming years,” Solskjaer stated.
According to reports, de Gea will earn £350, 000 per-week wage as agreed in his new deal, which will make him the highest-earning goalkeeper in the world.
