De Gea came under fire for his error that saw Cristiano Ronaldo score for Portugal and was also blasted for failing to save a penalty in the last 16 shootout exit to Russia, he had an awful world cup after he succeeded to save only 1 shot of the 11 shots he faced. De Gea was back to his brilliant best in the 2-1 away win at Watford on Saturday making a stunning late save from Christian Kabasele to ensure the 3 points for United.
“Normally I never listen to the people who speak about me, I’m focused on my job and trying to help my team, trying to improve every session and trying to be as good as I can.
I never listen to stupid things they say.”
– De Gea on the criticism
United’s No.1 has a year left on his contract with the club and also holding an option to extend it by another 12 months until 2020. De Gea’s future has been repeatedly questioned since a move to Spain seemed inevitable, but until this summer when the Spanish Giants secured Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea.
“I feel really loved in this club, the fans, all the people who work for this club, so I’m really happy to be at this club, It’s one of the best clubs in the world so for me, it’s really good to be part of this club.”
– De Gea
These words would be a music to the ears for the United fans, who would want their star performer to secure his future with the club. United would like De Gea to sign a new five-year deal and the United hierarchy have reasons to be highly optimistic about it.
