Jose Mourinho has announced that David de Gea is ready to sign a contract extension with Manchester United to end uncertainty about his future.
For some years, every temporary transfer window has been causing unpleasant transfer talks
Real Madrid had often led the prosecution of De Gea, but they have picked Thibaut Courtois in the summer from Chelsea and United has been free to focus on new conditions with to agree on her No. 1.

These talks should lead to a positive conclusion, with Mourinho telling reporters when he asked what the 27-year-old might be worth in a marketplace on which Alisson and Kepa Arrizabalaga paid £ 67 million (US $ 85 million) £ 72m ($ 92m): "His [De Gea’s] rating is nil, because he is a Manchester United United player signing a new contract as soon as possible
" He likes it here, we love it him, we want him to stay, he wants to stay, so if a player is not on the market value is zero.
"A goalkeeper is a player and sometimes people forget that. A goalkeeper wins points and wins titles, so he is as important as another player."
Mourinho added, "The old story of" I would to pay for a striker, but I would not pay it for a goalkeeper & # 39; is old fashioned. The market understands that now and I'm happy for the goalkeepers.
"But with David it is a collective situation involving the player, his agent [Jorge Mendes] and Manchester United.
" The agent has not created a war to achieve his goals. He respected the club, he respected the player, the player was always interested in staying and was happy to do so and the club understood how important he was.
"So we have always tried to give him the conditions to make him happy, so to all three parties."
Mourinho is pleased to see De Gea ready as he thinks the Spain International is in its chosen position the best in the world.
The United boss added, "I do not want to be disrespectful or arrogant about other guardians and say Courtois is not good or Manuel Neuer is not good – there are so many."
"What I'm saying is that I would not trade De Gea for anyone. "
