After speculation about Manchester United’s star David Degea moving away from the club never seemed to vanish, fresh reports of him being happy at Old Trafford would have eased the tension on a lot of Reds fans.

The 24-year-old is out of contract at the end of next season and is yet to agree a new deal with the club. Real Madrid are keen to take the Spanish international back to his homeland after identifying him as the ideal successor to Iker Casillas.

With United aware of Real Madrid after they lured their star man Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009 for a then World Record fee. Hence, the Red Devils are prepared to make him the highest paid goalkeeper in the world on £200,000-a-week.

De Gea’s agent Jorge Mendes is currently negotiating with United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward. And while they have yet to reach an agreement, it is understood that the player is happy at Old Trafford and has no immediate desire to return to his home town of Madrid, according to Manchester Evening News.

De Gea’s girlfriend and the pop star Edurne Garcia recently sparked fears among the fans that he would end his time at United when she was quoted as saying Manchester is ‘not very nice.’ She has since denied those comments.

After struggling to find his feet initially at Old Trafford when he arrived for £18.9m from Atletico Madrid in 2011, De Gea has established himself as one of the finest in Europe. This season particularly he has been Manchester United’s best player after saving many points for the team in crucial occasions.

Even though United are desperate to tie him down to a long-term deal, the signing of former Barcelona keeper Victor Valdes on a free transfer last January is regarded as a security measure in case they lose their first choice.

Also if United are to pen Degea down with a new contract, it could most likely contain a buyout clause if Real come calling. However, earlier reports indicated that Degea does not wish to have a buyout clause in his contract since at some point in his career he may move to Madrid. But, it is unlikely United will not have a buyout clause in his contract.
