Sources close to David de Gea expect Manchester United to offer the goalkeeper a new long-term contract in October. 

This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the Red Devils will attempt to tie down the player one last time after his move to Spanish giants Real Madrid failed to go through on Monday evening. 

De Gea had looked set to complete a move to the La Liga outfit, however the deal was scuppered late on in the Spanish transfer window.

And now, with the player currently on international duty with Spain, De Gea looks set to return to Manchester to play out the final year of his contract on English soil. 

It appears, though, that he could yet remain in Manchester for the long-term with the club set to offer him a new deal. The same report goes on to claim, however, that the United hierarchy aren't hopeful that the player will commit his future to the club, but believe they have nothing to lose by offering him the contract. 

Key for the season

Let's be honest, the David de Gea transfer saga is only going to rumble on over the course of the next few months, but the player needs to get back out on the pitch sooner rather than later. 

There's no doubt about it, after securing back-to-back Player of the Year awards in Manchester, the Spanish international really is one of the standout goalkeepers in world football right now. 

And, if United manage to get him back on side, then he could yet play another key role in helping them move up the Premier League table under the Louis van Gaal regime.
