Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea had no intention of leaving the club on a free transfer this summer.

As reported by the Manchester Evening News, the Spanish shot-stopper, who failed to complete a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid late on in the window, previously told teammates he was never going to leave the Old Trafford outfit for nothing.

De Gea signed a new contract with the Red Devils earlier this month and now looks set to stay on in Manchester until the summer of 2019.

However, with the same report claiming that United are bracing themselves for another approach from Real Madrid next summer, it remains to be seen as to whether the shot-stopper will eventually return to the Spanish capital. 

One thing is for sure, the 'keeper looks set to stay on in Manchester for the foreseeable future and should start in tomorrow's Premier League clash with struggling Sunderland. 

United coup

The renewal of De Gea's contract really did prove a fine coup for the club. Louis van Gaal made a number of top signings throughout the course of the transfer window, but keeping the former Atletico man at the club may well be the best deal of them all. 

Ultimately, De Gea is one of the standout goalkeepers in world football and will only continue to go from strength-to-strength over the coming years. There's no doubt about it, he really can inspire United to Premier League success in the near future.
