Man United set to announce deal for highly coveted star

Jose Mourinho began a rebuilding effort in Man United last season and the calibre of players signed by the Portuguese manager in the immediate past summer has seen his team play better this season. The Special One is poised to keep his current crop of players for the foreseeable future.

According to various reports making the rounds, David de Gea is set to sign a new contract with Man United as the Red Devils look to keep his suitors at bay.

De Gea has been identified as the heir apparent to Madrid legend Iker Casilas but all their attempt to sign the Spanish shot stopper has hit the brick wall. He was close to a Santiago Bernabeu move in the summer of 2015 but for a faulty fax machine that scuppered the move of deadline day.

He was heavily linked with a move to Madrid last summer but Mourinho has insisted on keeping the goalie and now he will be offered a new improved contract that is certain to keep him at the Fortress of Old Trafford for the foreseeable future, not forgetting that his current contract runs until the summer of 2019, according to the Independent.

Jose Mourinho is one manager that hardly allows the best of his team to leave. He’s known more for making big signings into the club he managers.
