Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has made a clear statement that he is ready to set his long-term future for the club.

United recently launched a one-year option for De Gea's current deal, which will run until the summer of 2020, but could not agree to an extension beyond that.

In recent days it has been reported that the Spaniard was only prepared to get involved with the Old Trafford Club when offered to Alexis Sanchez to reach the top.

However, it appears that the upswing of the clubs under the interim head Ole Gunnar Solskjaer De Gea has convinced them that the club can live up to its ambitions and is prepared to sign a contract worth around £ 375,000 a week.

De Gea has commented on Alvarez's contribution

The talks are expected to continue, but a post in the social media of Emilio Alvarez indicates that a breakthrough may have been made.

Alvarez, goalkeeping coach of the club, has uploaded a picture with Instagram on Instagram next to De Gea and another friend: "Friends, coffee time, excited future".

The post was immediately spotted by the wide-eyed United fans who left comments behind the picture that prompted the Spaniard to stay in Manchester.

De Gea added the intrigue later when he commented on the photo with two emblem emojis above.

United has tied a number of first-team players to long-term contracts. Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw are the youngest, but De Gea remains the one they want to achieve.

Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are among the clubs that are watching the situation of the Spanish national team in Manchester. Both could offer the shooter a raise.

De Gea joined United in 2011, but was close to leaving for Real Madrid in the summer of 2015 before his deal with him broke into the Bernabeu.

In a difficult time for the club, he remained the most reliable player of United and won four times the award "Player of the Year" at Old Trafford.
