Manchester United have been trying to pin down goalkeeper David De Gea to a contract extension for some time now, and were concerned that he would walk off as a free agent at the end of the season.

While the player’s camp haven’t revealed what they are planning, De Gea had been linked with a who’s who of European football clubs. Meanwhile, the Red Devils were apparently looking for a replacement with Everton’s Jordan Pickford and Atlético Madrid’s Jan Oblak the top candidates. In recent days Real Madrid backup Keylor Navas had also been mooted.

However, today it appears United have triggered a one-year extension clause that will now keep the goaltender at Old Trafford through till the end of the 2019-20 season. This should mean that the Manchester club should leave Everton in peace for another year at the very least.

Wayne Rooney is the most perfectly imperfect player ever, and for that we should be appreciative

Wayne Rooney is the most perfectly imperfect player ever, and for that we should be appreciative So let us winkingly introduce another: We might never see a player like Wayne Rooney again. There are some not-so-pretty moments of Rooney’s professional career that will be addressed in this space. There have been elite strikers who might not be able to ride roller coasters at some amusement parks in the United States. The Premier League’s all-time leading scorer, the only man in front of Rooney in that regard, is Alan Shearer, a 6-foot specimen who you’d instantly recognize as a prototypical No. 9. For all his awkwardness, the current England No. 9, Harry Kane, is tall and strong and eminently skilled. That was never really Rooney.

Goal! Manchester United 3-0 Everton (Lukaku 89). Well that is a little unfortunate for Everton , and namely those fans who jeer mockingly when Lukaku’s tame free-kick cannons off the wall. De Gea saves the shot from Sigurdsson. Photograph: Oli Scarff/AFP/Getty Images. Updated at 12.28pm EDT.

Manchester United have no intention of selling David de Gea , despite Real Madrid’s interest.

Pickford has seen a meteoric rise in his career over the last couple of years, which saw him transfer to the Toffees from Sunderland for £30 million at the beginning of last season, win a spot in the England national team and eventually take over the starting role for the Three Lions at the 2018 World Cup. Everton had already fended off approaches for their keeper from Chelsea last summer and appeared to be gearing up for another round of rumours.

De Gea has indicated he is unhappy with his current deal and has asked the club to raise his wages to be more in line with players like Alexis Sanchez who is at £350,000 a week.

Mourinho's agent shuts down reports of Manchester United departure.
Super-agent Jorge Mendes has stepped in for his client, Jose Mourinho, denying rumors the Manchester United manager is on his way out of the club in the near future. Recent reports in some English tabloids, including one by Neil Ashton of the Sun, suggest the Red Devils' brass is eyeing Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino to replace Mourinho. Mendes put those claims to rest in a statement Friday, dismissing the notions Mourinho is eager to leave of his own accord or that the club aims to sack him in the midst of its eighth-place standing in the Premier League table.
