Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he is confident David de Gea will sign a new contract, despite prolonged talks without a breakthrough.
The Spaniard has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford but Solskjaer is confident the club will convince the shot-stopper to extend his stay. Reports emerged that De Gea had agreed to sign a new six-year deal but the United boss admitted he is in the dark about how discussions have developed since then.
"I am very - well - I am pretty confident it will get sorted. He's not said anything to me other than he loves this club and wants to stay here, and he's had a fantastic time," he said.
. "You need to ask David and the club [how conversations are going]. I've not been involved in the discussions. So let's just hope we get it over the line."
"He can see what we're doing here. We want the best players here and the ones we want - most of the time - stay. There aren't many that we want to keep that we don't manage to. I am confident we will manage to convince David that here is the future for him - and a successful future."
De Gea's contract with the Red Devils is set to expire at the end of the season.
