David de Gea doesn't have to renew contract to play

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea will not be frozen out at Old Trafford even if he fails to sign a new contract, according to a club spokesman. 

As reported by Eurosport, the Red Devils claim the goalkeeper will be picked on 'merit' and that today's reports from Spain are 'absolute rubbish'.

Earlier today, AS suggested that De Gea's agent Jorge Mendes had been told the player would only play for United this season if he managed to agree a new long-term contract at the Theatre of Dreams.

And, with Euro 2016 on the horizon, the same report from AS claimed that the shot-stopper would be willing to sign on in Manchester for the foreseeable future. 

It appears, though, that this isn't the case, with a Manchester United spokesman having blasted the reports. 

A Manchester United spokesman told PA Sport: "Those reports are absolute rubbish, the team will always be picked solely on merit."

United need De Gea 

In truth, opinion may well be split on this one. At the end of the day, you could hardly blame United for wanting De Gea to sign a new deal, but it's crucial that they manage to get him back on side sooner rather than later. 

Ultimately, there's no point in keeping an unhappy player at the club, but if the United hierarchy manage to win him over, then he may well repay them on the pitch. At the end of the day, De Gea has been the club's standout player for the past two seasons, and there's no reason why he won't be able to prove his credentials in Manchester once again this season.
