Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has committed his future to Manchester United by signing a contract that runs until June of 2023.
The 28-year old has made 367 appearances for the club since signing from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2011.
Since joining United, De Gea has been named the club's player of the year on four occasions but has also attracted the attention of Europe's biggest clubs.
Speaking to the Manchester United website, De Gea says he's happy to finally put pen to paper,
It has been a privilege to spend eight years at this great club and the opportunity to continue my career at Manchester United is a genuine honour. Since I arrived here, I could never have imagined I would play over 350 games for this club. Now my future is fixed, all I want is to help this team achieve what I believe we can and win trophies again, together.

As one of the senior players in the squad, I want to support and lead in any way that I can to assist the younger players, so they know what it means to play here. I still feel that I have so much more to achieve at the club and I truly believe that Manchester United can build on the club’s tradition of success and reward our fans for their support.
I am committed to continue repaying the fans for all of the care that they’ve shown me during the good times and the bad.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was equally pleased to keep his prized stopper, "I am delighted that David has committed his long-term future to the club. Over recent years, David has proved himself to be the best in the world and a vital part of our plans as we look to take Manchester United back to where it belongs. David is a fantastic person and his outstanding quality provides the perfect base to our defence."
