David de Gea is planning on spending “many years” at Manchester United, with the Spaniard looking to take in another 400 games for the club.
A long-serving figure at Old Trafford hit that notable appearance mark in his last outing for the Red Devils.
The 29-year-old has overtaken the legendary Peter Schmeichel on the list of most prominent goalkeepers in United’s history.
He does not have the medal collection to match the iconic Dane, though, and is determined to put that right over the coming years.
De Gea is tied to a long-term contract that he signed in September 2019, with the intention being to remain the Red Devils’ No.1 for the foreseeable future.
He told United’s official website, with the emergence of Dean Henderson on loan at Sheffield United seeing questions asked of his role at Old Trafford:
“I’m very, very proud to reach 400 games.
“It’s something amazing just to be part of this club. It’s something crazy… imagine to reach 400 games… it’s something very, very special for me and hopefully I can play another 400 games and just enjoy things day by day and enjoy being part of this club.
“I just want to keep playing and enjoying training and enjoying being with my team-mates and the staff and everyone. I just enjoy wearing the Manchester United shirt in every game and to play at Old Trafford is always special.
“I’m grateful to be here and hopefully I can be here for many years.”
