“It’s been the same over the years” : Dea Gea Opens Up On Situations Regarding His Contract.
Manchester United goalkeeper, David de Gea, has reportedly rejected the club’s contract offer despite expressing his happiness and commitment to the Red Devils. The Spaniard, who is one of the highest-paid players at Old Trafford, is set to become a free agent in a few months, and United are keen to bring their squad wages more in line.
De Gea, who first joined United as a young player under the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, spoke to Sky Sports about his love for the club and his focus on helping the team achieve their objectives.
‘I’ve been here many many years, enjoying every moment in this club playing many games,’ The Spainish International Said. ‘Of course it’s great to be here, it’s a massive club and I love the club and I’m really happy here of course.
‘It’s been the same over the years, there’s a lot of noise around the club but players just focus on games, especially the one we have one Sunday – a massive game for us because we want to finish in the top four.
‘Like I say, we have many many games so I think we have to be really really caring on training, recovering well, helping the team and that’s the most important thing, more than contracts or anything
Despite initial concerns about his suitability for Erik ten Hag’s style of play, De Gea has proved his worth with a series of impressive performances in recent weeks and months, highlighting his importance to the team. However, the club’s reported desire to reduce wages could make negotiations over a new contract challenging.
United are seeking to end their chronic overspending, and De Gea’s reported weekly wage of £375,000 is a significant contributor to the club’s wage bill.
Nevertheless, the goalkeeper remains focused on the upcoming games, including a crucial match on Sunday, which could determine United’s chances of finishing in the top four.
