- Story Text: Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has signed a new four-year contract, the club said on Friday (September 11), a week after a proposed transfer to Real Madrid collapsed.
The Spain international, 24, almost joined Madrid on transfer deadline day, but the deal fell through as the necessary paperwork was not filed in time.
His previous deal was set to expire at the end of the season.
De Gea was left out of United's opening games of the season, but could return to the starting lineup for Saturday's (September 12) clash against arch-rivals Liverpool.
