Premier League club Manchester United have opened contract talks with David de Gea, according to the goalkeeper’s agent Jorge Mendes.
De Gea has been subject of transfer speculations linking him with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid with his current contract due to expire in 2016.
The arrival of former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes on a free transfer and the club’s decision not to sell Anders Lindergaard over the winter transfer window has hyped rumours about a prospective departure for De Gea, who joined the Old Trafford outfit from Atletico Madrid in an £18m deal in 2011.
“It’s not true that the deal is done,” Mendes was quoted as telling Spanish radio station Cadena Ser by AS. “I am negotiating his contract renewal but we haven’t signed anything yet. As of this moment, we will see what happens.
“We’re holding talks and at this moment, it seems he could continue with United, but as I say, we haven’t signed anything yet.”
