With David De Gea facing the possibility of leaving Manchester United on a free transfer at the end of the season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the Spaniard has expressed his intentions of staying at the club.
Back in July, reports indicated that De Gea had verbally agreed on a six-year contract with United worth £375,000-a-week and the club expected him to sign new terms upon their return to Europe from the pre-season tour of Australia and Asia. De Gea is set to be out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Leicester clash, Solskjaer was asked about De Gea's contract delays, "I think you'd need to ask David and the club that. I've obviously not been involved in all the discussions, but I'm very - or pretty - confident we'll get this sorted.
"David's never, ever said anything else to me, other that he loves this club, he wants to stay here and he's had a fantastic time, so let's hope we just get it over the line. I think he's had a fantastic time here, but yeah, of course, whenever he concedes a goal.
"It's headlines, that he should have saved. Whenever we lose a game - we've lost one game since July 1 - and it sounds like we're really struggling. But that's just the way it is at Man United and you have to handle it. You have to be resilient, you've got to have robust confidence, and he's fine. I don't worry about him at all.
