Erik ten Hag refuses to confirm David de Gea will be offered new Man Utd deal as he says no decision has been made

ERIK TEN HAG refused to confirm whether Manchester United will offer David de Gea a new contract.

The Spaniard, 31, joined the Red Devils from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and recently celebrated 500 appearances for the club.

But his current deal is set to expire at the end of the season, leading to uncertainty surrounding his future.

And Ten Hag is not being drawn on what their plans are for De Gea – who is on a huge £375,000 a week.

Speaking after the draw with Chelsea, the United boss said: “We didn’t make a decision on him but what I can say is that I am really happy with David de Gea as a keeper.

“His first two performances of the season were not his best performances but after you see he brings us a lot for the defensive department, gives stability.

“And, as a person, I like him, I can really cooperate with him really well but first we go to the winter and then we will talk about how deal with such situations.

“In this moment we only think about perfoming, we have a lot of games to go, so I don’t want to get that interfered by talks.

“We have to focus on football and performances, not on negotiating. That’s what we have to do now.”

De Gea has started all 13 of Man Utd’s games so far this season.


Ten Hag’s back-up shot-stoppers are Martin Dubravka and Tom Heaton.

Dean Henderson is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest and, back in August, slammed United for failing to keep their promise of making him No1 last season.

His comments would appear to make a return to Old Trafford unlikely.

United are being with other keepers including Porto star Diogo Costa and Atletico Madrid man Jan Oblak.
