United open talks with De Gea

David-De-Gea_3258445Manchester United have opened talks with David De Gea over a new contract, according to Jorge Mendes, the goalkeeper’s agent.

The 24-year-old, who has less than 18 months left on his contract, has been in outstanding form this season and has repeatedly been linked with a move to Real Madrid, as the Spanish giants look to replace Iker Casillas.

Speaking to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser on Sunday evening, Mendes dismissed suggestions of a deal with Madrid and added that talks had begun with United.

“It’s not true that the deal is done,” Mendes was quoted as saying by Spanish newspaper 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.”
