Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reassured that David De Gea will not turn the knob on the exit door and leave the outfit, amid heavy interest in the 28-year-old.
De Gea is reportedly angling to depart United since stitching moots from the rumour mill. It is understood the Spaniard is raring to leave after rebutting a long term deal by the club to make him stay.
Giant Football News understands talks to make him stay have taken a sudden slouch, but United have the option to trigger another extra length of 12 months, if they can’t hammer out a deal for the 28-year-old.
Mourinho remains the Spanish international’s biggest fan and, again, has thrown a few words packing plenty of hope over De Gea’s future.
Midway into the first half of this campaign, Mourinho claimed there was a spanner in the works over getting De Gea to sign for the long haul.
It drew suspicions United were set to lose their best player,and their sudden scouring for a replacement between the sticks, did not abate the swelling and aching situation.
However, after United’s 1-0 over Young Boys in the Champions League, Mourinho told Sky Sports, “I know he wants to stay.”
He added without De Gea United would be another sinking Titanic.
