Manchester United could be in for a shock as David de Gea could be set for a stunning U-turn, by not only staying at Old Trafford, but also signing a new deal with the club.

According to the Daily Express, the 24-year-old had looked set to join Real Madrid, especially after club legend Iker Casillas agreed to join Porto. However, Marca have now suggested that Los Blancos are closing in a €3m deal for Espanyol keeper Kiko Casilla, which claims from Italy have suggested may persuade him to stay in the Premier League, according to the Express.
The Express reports that the Spain international has just one year left on his current contract in England, which had led to speculation that he would leave next summer if a fee could not be agreed during this window. However, the Express suggest he could now surprise everyone by signing a new deal.
The thought that he could still keep hold of his key man should be enough to persuade Louis van Gaal to do everything in his power to keep him. With a move previously appearing to be on the cards, the Dutchman faced an almost impossible task of replacing the stopper, but now there’s a chance he may not have to.
