Red Devils optimistic over David de Gea plan because of Real Madrid

The Guardian reports that Manchester United are confident of tying David de Gea down to a new contract and extending his stay at the club.

And they have been boosted in their hopes of securing the long-term future of the keeper after Real Madrid signed Thibaut Courtois.

Last season, De Gea won the Premier League's Golden Glove award for the first time as he helped United 18 clean sheets and was also included in the Professional Footballers' Association team of the year.

Real Madrid have been heavily linked with signing the Spain worldwide for several seasons now, but with former Chelsea 'keeper Thibaut Courtois having moved to the Bernabeu, that speculation finally seems ready to be put to bed once and for all and De Gea will commit his long term future to United.

De Gea has earned a reputation as one of European football's top performing goalkeepers since his move to Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid back in the summer of 2011.

The Red Devils were 2-1 winners over Leicester City in their Premier League opener at the King Power Stadium on Friday night.
