Ten Hag coy on De Gea’s contract

Erik ten Hag has failed to confirm whether Manchester United will offer David de Gea a new contract.

His current deal is set to expire at the end of the season, leading to uncertainty surrounding his future.

And ten Hag is not being drawn on what their plans are for De Gea – who is on a huge £375,000-a-week.

The United boss said: “We didn’t make a decision on him but what I can say is that I am really happy with David de Gea as a keeper.

“His first two performances of the season were not his best performances but after you see he brings us a lot for the defensive department, gives stability.

“And, as a person, I like him, I can really cooperate with him really well but first we go to the winter and then we will talk about how deal with such situations.

“In this moment we only think about perfoming, we have a lot of games to go, so I don’t want to get that interfered by talks.

“We have to focus on football and performances, not on negotiating. That’s what we have to do now.”
