THE BIGGER PICTURE: The goalkeeper has previously made it clear he "loves" Manchester United in response to speculation he could leave on a free transfer at the end of the season. Ten Hag has also praised his stopper and defended his kicking ability, insisting he is a "complete goalkeeper."
AND WHAT'S MORE: De Gea's kicking has been in the spotlight since Ten Hag took over and even led to speculation the Dutchman could sign a new goalkeeper, but it is thought that the Dutchman values his experience and leadership in the squad. Brentford's David Raya had been linked with a move, but the Red Devils looks set to continue with De Gea and will now prioritise strengthening other positions in the squad instead in the summer transfer window.
