MANCHESTER UNITED star David de Gea has hinted he wants to sign a new long-term deal at Old Trafford.
The Spaniard has been the Red Devils’ No. 1 since 2011 but has entered the last 12 months of his current £375,000-a-week contract.
Man United have the option to extend the contract for another 12 months.
And de Gea appears to want an even longer stay – despite being recently linked with Juventus.
After yesterday’s 2-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park, the 31-year-old told BT Sport: “I’m just really focused on helping the games and helping the team as much as I can.
“Of course I would like to stay here for more years, so let’s see what happens in the future. I’m really, really happy here.”
De Gea saw off competition from Dean Henderson last season, with the homegrown stopper joining Nottingham Forest on loan this season.
Martin Dubravka was recruited from Newcastle as his new deputy, with Tom Heaton third choice.
De Gea was beaten by an Alex Iwobi stunner last night only for goals from Antony and Cristiano Ronaldo to turn the game around.
After the win, the experienced United stopper added: “We controlled the game until maybe the last 10 minutes.

“It was huge for our confidence, we have to look forward to the next games. It’s an honor to be here, it’s a privilege.”
“It was great to be in goal today as the team were fighting for three points.
“He is [Ronaldo] never been in this situation [starting on the bench], but how he works and trains, it’s just amazing. It’s not an easy time for him, but he’s shown he’s a great player.”
United’s win moved them up to fifth in the Prem table – just a point behind Champions League places.
