David de Gea is convinced that contract negotiations with Manchester United are set to ‘end in a good way’ and he will extend his career at Old Trafford.

De Gea made his 510th appearance for United in Tuesday’s win over Bournemouth – moving into 10th place on the club’s all-time list – and was in top form as he kept his fourth clean sheet in a row.

However, United declined to trigger the automatic 12-month extension in the Spaniard’s contract last month when they gave Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Diogo Dalot and Fred an extra year on their deals until June 2024.

United are understood to be reluctant to keep the former Atletico Madrid keeper for another year on his current £375,000-a-week salary, and want De Gea to accept a pay-cut before offering him a new contract on reduced terms.

The club are not actively looking for a replacement even though it emerged on Wednesday that United are in talks with Crystal Palace to sign Jack Butland until the end of the season after Newcastle cut short Martin Dubravka’s loan.

‘I’m very relaxed,’ he said
