De Gea was on the brink of leaving United to join Spanish club Real Madrid, but the papers were filed after the transfer deadline. The custodian was forced to sign a new four-year extension with the Red Devils, which terminates on June 2019.
A release clause worth £30 million is included in the new deal, approximately the same amount of the previous transfer agreement.
“You should ask Jorge that question,” David De Gea said. “He is the one who pays attention to those sort of details.” United officials earlier refused to comment on the issue. De Gea also tried to smartly dodge the question earlier. The release clause leaves the option for the Spanish International to exit Old Trafford if any honorable offer comes in his way.
So gossips and rumors of a probable move won’t die easily.
