There are plenty of grapevines stating that Manchester United will not renew any contracts for the 10 players whose deals expire in 2016 until the end of the summer. It would be heart-stamping news for those players as everyone knew that their place is not secured, especially under the Louis Van Gaal region. The Red Devils are never hesitant of splashing cash on big name stars as well as young talents, as they did in the previous summer window, however most are still struggling to sink their teeth into impressive performances. Additionally, the former Ajax and Netherlands boss has resolutely stated that they are looking for a midfielder in the upcoming transfer window. Ashley Young would be sweating over his future as he is the only midfielder who is under the list of ambiguous future at Old Trafford.
A sublime player who is marooned in the middle of this wondering situation is their inspiring goal guardian, David De Gea. It would be a huge blow if the Spanish international is not handed a new contract after series of world-class performances since the beginning of the season. De Gea has made 72 saves so far this season, safeguarding seven clean sheets. It would be irrational if the Red Devils are not placing him under their future project as he has earned lots of admiration in the last few seasons. His agent is playing a key role in his transfer saga, pivoting around statements, crafting a path to Real Madrid plus at times saying that De Gea would remain at Old Trafford.
On the other hand, Real Madrid are vastly looking for a long-term replacement fellow countryman, Iker Casillas and the 24-year old would be a gem of an addition. Manchester United gloomily allowed their top notch winger Cristiano Ronaldo leaving to Bernabeu but it did not affect them the season after as new signings as well as key players stepping up boldly to fill his void. Nevertheless, if their current goalkeeping hero leaves, it might just steer their rocket ship into the ground. The Spaniard is among the world’s best at present, moreover looking at the bigger picture, he still has ample of years to go where he could reach skyrocketing level.
Manchester United iconic superstar, Peter Schmeichel says that signing David De Gea to a new contract would send a message to their rivals. He mentioned “It’s very important the club’s best players sign new contracts to send a signal. It shows that they believe in the Manchester United project and believe the club will go back not only to the top of the Premier League but also European football. If De Gea signs a new deal it would be a very big signal and I’m sure everyone who loves the club would love that. Fingers crossed he will sign another five-year contract.”
The Manchester club are still fighting dynamically among handful of other teams to capture the Champions League spot. Even if they miss the spot, the Red Devils should prove that players do have faith on their ambition. The fantasy premier league starlet joined United in 2011, with a fee of 18.6 million pounds and now his value is ranging close to 50 million pounds. A great piece of business, but could come back and haunt them!
