The Spain International, who has made 250 appearances for the Red Devils, joined United from Atletico Madrid back in 2011.
Manchester United have exercised their right to extend David de Gea’s contract for an additional year, tying the Spain international to Old Trafford until 2020.
The Spaniard signed a new four-year contract in September 2015, just days after a proposed move to Real Madrid was scuppered on transfer deadline day.
And as has been recent club policy, United included the ability for them to add a further year to the goalkeeper’s deal to hold onto him until the end of the 2019-20 season.
There have been ongoing talks this season regarding a new long-term contract for the four-time Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year, but with an agreement still yet to be found United have moved to secure the 28-year-old for a further 12 months.
While United’s decision to pick up their option was always expected to be a formality, De Gea would have been free to speak to foreign clubs regarding a potential summer 2019 transfer from as early as January 1 had the Red Devils not acted to confirm his stay for the extra year.
