It was trusted that there exists a rift between Goalkeeper De Gea and his current club manager Van Gaal as the former has demonstrated an immense enthusiasm for joining Real Madrid.. The rumours also claimed that De Gea has put his house on sale gesturing Good-Bye to Old Trafford. Real Madrid has also shown a good participation in signing De Gea and offered many proposals to the Red Devils which includes swap deal with Sergio Ramos. The chase went on till the last date of transfer window and finally deal fell off as the necessary paperwork was not submitted on time.

Manchester United and Real Madrid blamed each other for the debacle, which left De Gea able to leave United as a free agent at the end of this season.

The chasing story and all the spats came to an end on Friday when De Gea signed a new 4 years contarct with The Red Devils.

De Gea, whose deal includes an option for a fifth year, told the club's official website: "I am delighted to be starting this new chapter in my United career. I have always enjoyed playing with these great players in front of our fantastic fans.

"Manchester United is a special club and Old Trafford is an ideal place for me to continue to develop my career. I'm looking forward to putting a difficult summer behind me and concentrating on working hard to improve and help my teammates to be successful."

Louis van Gaal said: “I am absolutely delighted David has signed a new contract. He is one of the best goalkeepers in world football. I am very pleased that he will be part of the team for many years to come. David made a very important contribution to our performance last season and he has been the club’s Player of the Year for the last two seasons. He is a popular player who is keen to learn and enhance his game. At such a young age for a goalkeeper, he has many years ahead of him.”

De Gea has not played for United this season as manager Louis van Gaal felt he could not focus amid interest from Real. He has made 175 appearances for the club since his signing in 2011 and now expected to make his season debut for United in Saturday's home game against Liverpool.
