Mourinho Comments On De Gea's Future

With reports suggesting that goalkeeper David de Gea could leave for Juventus or Paris Saint-Germain, Jose Mourinho has addressed the player's future at Manchester United.

The shot-stopper was named the Man of the Match in United's 1-0 win over Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League this week, a game during which he pulled off a world-class save while the match was still scoreless.

Speaking after the match on De Gea's future following rumours the Spaniard could soon leave Old Trafford, Mourinho insisted the club is working on a new deal for the 28-year-old.

"He is a world-class player," the Portuguese tactician said, according to The Independent.

"He is the best goalkeeper in the world and, if our ambitions are to be a big club, to be a winning club, you need the best goalkeeper in the world – and you need also some other players the best in the world.

"In this case, we have the best goalkeeper in the world, and I know that he wants to stay.

"I know that his agent is happy to do what the player wants and I also know that the board wants him to stay and they're working on that, so hopefully, sooner or later, they arrive into good conclusions."
