Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms there’s ‘no update’ on David De Gea contract situation

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has this afternoon spoken out over David De Gea’s proposed new contract.

De Gea’s rise to stardom

28-year-old shot-stopper David De Gea made the move to Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

The Rojiblancos youth product initially struggled to settle, though, with many having questioned whether or not De Gea would be capable of fulfilling his unquestionable potential under the bright lights of one of world football’s biggest clubs.

However, the years since have seen the Madrid native do just that, and more.

De Gea has gone on to establish himself as one of the finest goalkeepers on the planet, whilst cementing his status as Manchester United’s most important player.

De Gea’s struggles

But, with United having, particularly over recent years, largely failed to capitalize on their shot-stopper’s brilliance in terms of securing any form of meaningful silverware, De Gea has inevitably been linked with a possible departure from Old Trafford.

The alarming dip in form suffered by the former Atletico man over the final months of last season, meanwhile, subsequently saw the speculation surrounding his future move up a notch this summer, with French giants PSG long-touted as a potential destination.

New deal agreed?

As such, with just 12 months remaining on his current deal at Old Trafford, suggestions had begun to mount that United may be forced into parting ways with De Gea before the close of the European transfer window, to ensure that they managed to secure some form of return for the Spaniard.

Such claims, however, were definitively shut down last month.

This came amid widespread claims that the 39-time capped international was on the verge of committing his future to the Red Devils, by putting pen-to-paper on a new 6-year deal:

‘Can’t update you’

To this point, though, confirmation of De Gea’s new deal has not been forthcoming.

As such, speaking in a press conference ahead of his side’s trip to Southampton this weekend, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked for an update on the situation.

The United boss’ response, however, is not likely to fill the Old Trafford faithful with confidence.

Solskjaer simply revealed that, as things stand, there is no update, amid ‘ongoing talks’:
