Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has urged the club to end any lingering uncertainty over David De Gea’s future by handing him a new five-year contract.

De Gea has emerged as one of the finest goalkeepers in world football under Louis van Gaal and, with his contract due to expire at the end of next season, he has subsequently attracted interest from Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants see the 24-year-old as the long-term successor to Iker Casillas, but United ended months of inactivity regarding De Gea’s future in early February, as they signalled an intent to thrash out the details of a new deal.

De Gea’s agent, Jorge Mendes, then confirmed that he was negotiating a contract extension for his client, and Schmeichel has now implored the club to wrap up those talks as quickly as possible.

“It’s very important the club’s best players sign new contracts to send a signal,” he told Sky Sports.

“It shows that they believe in the Manchester United project and believe the club will go back not only to the top of the Premier League but also European football.

“If De Gea signs a new deal it would be a very big signal and I’m sure everyone who loves the club would love that.

“Fingers crossed he will sign another five-year contract.”
