De Gea now has 18 months left on his contract with United and the club are willing to trigger the extra one year option which will see him remain a Red Devil until 2020.
The contract renewal of De Gea would spell trouble for Chelsea as the La Liga giants will set their eyes upon Thibaut Courtois who is yet to pen a new deal with the club and has expressed his desire to head back to Madrid several times as of late.
The Spaniard displayed all his class as he reacted brilliantly to a headed attempt from Muriel from point-blank range to deny Sevilla take a lead in the first leg of the last-16 clash.

De Gea is now considered the best goal keeper in the world after producing stellar performance in their draw with Sevilla in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16.
