MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly set to begin contract talks with first-team goalkeeper David de Gea after his impressive start to the season.
The Spaniard’s current deal is set to expire in the summer of 2023 and United want to avoid a similar dilemma they have with top star Paul Pogba, who could leave for free for a SECOND time.

According to journalist Ekrem Konur, the Red Devils will begin contract talks with the 31-year-old soon.
De Gea has been a regular at United since the back end of the Sir Alex Ferguson era.
And this season he’s showing signs that his old form is returning.
One of his most important saves this term came against top-four rivals West Ham.

Newcastle are interested in signing Henderson in January, with the keeper desperate to impress in order to make Gareth Southgate’s 2022 World Cup squad.
