In a wide ranging interview with the BBC, the Portuguese super agent said that despite the shot stopper’s contract at Old Trafford expiring at the end next season and the continuing rumours of Real Madrid’s interest it was his understanding De Gea would remain in Manchester.
“He has one year left on his contract and I think that he will stay in Manchester,” Mendes said to the BBC.
“The player will decide, but he’s happy there, at the moment.”
This latest update on the future of De Gea comes after reports at the weekend claimed that the former Atletico Madrid man was demanding a buy-out clause to be inserted before he would entertain signing any new contract at Old Trafford.
And this would of course come hand in hand with a significant pay rise.
Just last week, Louis van Gaal said ‘everything is possible’ in terms of De Gea’s future before adding:
“We would like to keep him,” reports Daily Mail.
