Man Utd trigger David de Gea contract extension as talks over new deal stall

In his seven years at United, De Gea has won the Premier League title, FA Cup, the League Cup, the Community Shield and the Europa League.

But regular success in the Champions League and the Premier League is understood to be De Gea’s biggest desire.

Speaking after United’s win over Young Boys in the Champions League on Tuesday night, where De Gea made a stunning save to keep the match goalless, Mourinho said he was hoping for a “good conclusion” to the negotiations.

“He is a world-class player,” Mourinho said.
