De Gea has entered the final year of his contract with the 20-time English champions, although the Red Devils do have the option of a 12-month extension.
The Spain international has long been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, although long-term admirers Real Madrid signed Thibaut Courtois during the summer to become their new number one.
According to Manchester Evening News, United have ‘never been more confident’ of tying De Gea to a new contract, while the stopper is keen to pen a fresh deal due to his love of the club.
The 27-year-old, who has won the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award on four separate occasions, has made 325 appearances for the Red Devils since a 2011 move from Atletico Madrid.
